Michigan Union Targets Legislator’s Business

There’s a reason labor unions are chided for acting like bullies and thugs.

Just ask Michigan State Rep. Marty Knollenberg, who recently had dozens of unionists picketing outside his business due to education reform legislation currently under consideration in the state legislature.

Knollenberg is supportive of school reforms, so the teachers union has decided that his business and his customers should be targets for intimidation and thuggery.

See EAGtv’s coverage of the protest here.

This certainly isn’t unique. Wisconsin unions took similar action against business owners who refused to condemn Gov. Scott Walker’s reform efforts.

How would the unions feel if tea party members protested outside the homes of public employees and their union bosses? They don’t, because they understand that all Americans have the freedom to believe what they want to believe without having to fear for their safety or livelihoods.

The brash antics of unions may intimidate politicians, but they do nothing to win over the public. We’re certain that voters want their elected representatives to have the freedom to vote on legislation any way they choose, without their businesses being targeted. The longer union leaders fail to realize that, the more the public will turn against them and, sadly, many hard-working teachers.
