Whitmer Kills Right to Work in Michigan
« on: March 29, 2023, 01:23:31 pm »


In a move that Politico claims is somehow connected to making lives better for workers in a crushing economy, Michigan’s Democrat governor Gretchen Whitmer has struck down her state’s Right to Work Act.

That bill protected employees in Michigan from being compelled to fund a union against their will. Thanks to Whitmer’s repeal, it is unions — not working Americans and their families — that will enjoy government protections.

Now, unions can force membership on workers and make them pay dues as a condition of hire or continued employment. The National Law Review expects the change “to be effective in July, 90 days after the close of the state’s legislative session.” Whitmer signed the repeal bill last Friday.

Michigan is the first state in 58 years to repeal a right-to-work act. That is thanks to the fact that for the first time in 40 years, Democrats control Michigan’s state government.

Crumbling infrastructure?  Ghost cities?  Frigid, cloudy weather for half of the year?  Here’s an idea: Let’s drive every productive young person into another state.  Maybe they will send money home, like Mexicans.

"Besides taking away workers’ rights and making the state less attractive to businesses, Whitmer’s repeal of Right-To-Work will ensure unions have more money to donate to Democrats."

And there is the real reason.
"The most terrifying force of death, comes from the hands of Men who wanted to be left Alone. They try, so very hard, to mind their own business and provide for themselves and those they love. They resist every impulse to fight back, knowing the forced and permanent change of life that will come from it. They know, that the moment they fight back, their lives as they have lived them, are over. -Alexander Solzhenitsyn

Back during the peak of the housing bubble in the early 2000s, 60 minutes ran a story about how rough Michigan was. That was during the reign of Jennifer Granholm.

Whitmer:”Hold my beer.”
I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them.
