Nobody took away their right to belong to a union. Why all the fuss?

Read up on the effect of this. It is designed to break unions by making them pay for 'free riders'.

EVERYONE is going to be a free rider. if given the choice between paying thousands a year to the union or taking that money home to their families, how many do you realistically believe will keep giving that money to the union?

WGS; "free riders" cost the unions nothing. Union activity would go on regardless.

Dumbazz, the law that says they must bargain for everyone is there to protect union members, not non union people. If companies had the option, do you really think they would ever deal with corpulent, unproductive, rabble rousing thugs? No, they would prefer to deal with those without any proclivities toward unionization.

Their right to force people to pay tribute to union bosses to oppose their employer (source of their livlihood) has been reduced. From now on, the unions have to begin providing benefits to their members, not just democrats, who the workers may oppose.

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.
