    Michigan: A Right to Work State

    Unions ended sweat shops, demanded decent working conditions and allowed members to have the money to buy houses, cars and other things that drove the economy. More importantly, they are the only voice, of any substance, to stand up to corporations and their skewing of laws. Who else is going to fight against air pollution, stopping free speech, censorship, individual rights verses corporate interests? No, making Michigan a "right to work" state benefits the corporations way more than it benefits those who choose not to pay union dues. P.S. I never belonged to a union.

    • "Unions ended sweat shops, demanded decent working conditions "
      There are laws to cover these concerns. Unions aren't necessary for that any more.

      "and allowed members to have the money to buy houses, cars and other things that drove the economy."
      Members got too much too fast and caused irreparable harm.

      "More importantly, they are the only voice, of any substance, to stand up to corporations and their skewing of laws."
      Baloney - not necessary when lawyers are so plentiful!

      Unions ONCE had a place - really not needed any more, in any way...
