Michigan Governor Rick Snyder Signs Right to Work Legislation Into Law

It’s official: Michigan has become the 24th Right to Work state:

At a news conference at the George W. Romney Building steps away from the state Capitol, Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder (R) announced that he’d signed the contentious right-to-work measures that have sparked protests in the state.

Before dozens of reporters assembled inside a conference room on the building’s second floor, Snyder defended his move as one that would lead to ”more jobs coming to Michigan.”

The two bills bar unions from making contracts that require employees to pay labor dues. One bill dealt with public sector unions, exempting firefighters and police officers. The other covered the private sector.

    Good for Rick, looks like we are finally going to start replacing democrats with an iq of 27 with adults again, maybe we can correct this ship. If we can get the house to hold the line on taxes and defunding the programs we are against, then we can slow down the statism the government is trying to impose on us all.

    All 50 states should be “right to work” states. No one should be forced to join a union in order to be employed.

    Michigan becoming a right to work state is a miracle from God. I know because I was born in Michigan and lived under the marxists there for many years. Keep praying for Michigan, please. The fight is not over. Most of the people in Michigan have government slave mentality. Peace,
