I've worked in union and non-union shops. The union shops are always less productive and more expensive. I currently work at a unionized university in Illinois. The union constantly pushes for more pay for less work... or for getting paid for any little extra thing you do. They love to nickle-and-dime employers. Several years ago, a janitor changed a light bulb in my office. The bill... $60! Only a union person may change a light bulb, and at their ridiculous rates. I'm not even allowed to hammer a nail into my office wall to hang a picture. In fact, the union confiscated a hammer we had in our office because "only union janitors may use hammers on campus." The fee for hammering a nail to hang a picture? $50.

They really demonstrated their low points when a Fox news reporter was punched in the face, among many other incidents.

The states with the right to work rulings are the states that are seeing and will continue to see job growth as companies who are forced by the hands of the union in states where the work ruling is not in place.

Good riddance ...

It’s official: Michigan has become the 24th Right to Work state:

At a news conference at the George W. Romney Building steps away from the state Capitol, Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder (R) announced that he’d signed the contentious right-to-work measures that have sparked protests in the state.

Before dozens of reporters assembled inside a conference room on the building’s second floor, Snyder defended his move as one that would lead to ”more jobs coming to Michigan.”

The two bills bar unions from making contracts that require employees to pay labor dues. One bill dealt with public sector unions, exempting...
