The fact that only 11 people showed “for a discussion of the 2012 Chicago Teachers Union strike and what it means for Michigan unions,” could be signal that there may be underwhelming support for the unions’ Proposal 2 on Michigan’s statewide ballot.
Some people believe God is above the minutia of day-to-day American political battles, especially those involving power and money.
It sounds so innocuous: the “Protect Our Jobs” amendment. At a time of high unemployment, who wouldn’t find such a concept appealing? So union leaders are pulling out all the stops to get this measure, better known as Proposal 2, approved by Michigan’s voters on Election Day.
