The Michigan House is bringing Right-to-Work up for a vote in a closed session, including an appropriations bill and the Governor has agreed to sign it.

At least 8 Union protestors have been arrested by the Michigan State Police at the Capital.

The inclusion of an appropriation in the bill is key. With that the bill cannot be over-ruled via a referendum (which would be sure to follow if it were possible). The state Senate isn't much of a hurdle either as the GOP has a super-majority there.

Unless someone nukes Lansing in the very near future Michigan will be a Right-to-Work state in the very near future. Pending a bunch of lawsuits, that is (but the Conservatives have a 5-4 edge in state Supreme Court too so... yeah, looks good to go!)

I'll try not to be too smug about it to pouting UAW members. :-)

I was not aware of that.

Union thugs are known far and wide as being willing to kill the opposition, as in really kill them. Better watch out.

This is interesting...

We all know a trend will rarely ever truly reverse until it has exhausted itself and reached its full extension.

With the virtually complete bankruptcy & death of Detroit overwhelmingly recognized as due to generations of regional socialism... could this be the pre-kernel pre-curser preliminary foreboding of an unlikely birth of recovery in the most unexpected of all places???

I believe I said "union thugs." I don't think 2828's wife meets that definition, unless he's into kinky stuff.

Heck, I was a union person for 16 years, although in my case I didn't take it all that seriously.

But you were probably nice, though.
