There is a valid reason why this is a bad law. Free riders break unions by bankrupting them. Read up on the pros and cons of this law.

I have. And my pros and cons were not composed by organized labor.

Weapons-Grade STUPID; a "free rider" costs the union nothing.
They would be "bargaining" regardless,and the results would be the same no matter what.

If workers though having the union was a good idea,they'd be willing to pay their dues,WITHOUT coercion and automatic payroll deduction. The fact unions are worried that their members will not pay their dues and that they can't steal their "fees" from non-members shows that the unions are NOT wanted.

The Republican controlled Michigan legislature passed right-to-work legislation late Tuesday morning as union members loudly protested inside and outside of the Capitol in Lansing. Michigan Democrat Rep. Douglas Geiss threatened on the House floor this morning "there would be blood" if the legislation passed. Riot police have been on the scene since early this morning bracing for violence.

The Michigan House Democrats reiterated their threat on their Twitter page, but have since deleted it.
