One thought on “Michigan’s “right-to-work” laws”

  1. I’m not pro-union, but neither am I pro-crony capitalism (i.e. fascism…the alignment of big corporations with the government…different than socialism). Between the unions and the IRS tax laws and loopholes…they’ve both contributed to the best jobs being moved overseas. Our true un/underemployment is closer to 40% when you factor in people that have given up looking for work and those who hold part-time positions even though they want and need full time employment. Forget the 8% unemployment figure…it is a boldfaced lie!
