Looks like this means that the unions will have to have an Accounts Receivable and Collection Department now. I wonder what a Rank and File member will do when he/she has to choose how to distribute take home pay among mortgage, utilities, food, fuel, cable, telephone and union dues when writing the monthly checks?

When the union enforcers show up on your doorstep at 10 pm to collect their dues, he'll know what to do...

LANSING, Mich. — This just in: Hell freezes over, pigs fly, Jimmy Hoffa rises from the dead, joins labor protests at state capital.

I’m just kidding. We all know pigs can’t fly.

The fact, however, that the Legislature of my home state of Michigan has just voted to become the nation’s 24th right-to-work state is nothing short of preposterous. In a good way, of course.

Framed as “freedom-to-work” legislation, Michigan’s version of right to work is similar to that in other states. It protects workers from forced unionization and will mean employees cannot be fired from their jobs...
