Why Michigan Matters

I remember when my dad was a member of the labor union in N.Mex. back in the 60's. They would round up all the workers and tell them they had to vote for Democrats, and if they didn't wish to, to vote communist, as "they can't win anyway". They also added that if they didn't vote "you won't qualify for Social Security"! The workers then would believe that the Hod Carriers' Union "is on our side"! Unions are still pulling that kind of stuff in varying ways!

Watching the reaction of some union members you would have thought a mass murder had occurred in the state of Michigan. But what simply happened was a law was changed that exists in 23 others states and may soon be enacted in others. Right-to-work laws makes sense and it is as clear as the sky on a cloudless summer day.

The unions are particularly outraged about the turn of events in Michigan because they had just attempted a power play of their own during the November 6th election. They tried to ensconce in the state constitution their right to collective bargaining...
