    Michigan House passes right-to-work law

    Monroe County’s Dale Zorn, R-Ida, was one of only six Republicans to vote against the hotly debated Right-to-work legislation that passed the Michigan House Thursday.

    The bill passed 58-52 in the Republican-controlled Michigan House mostly along party lines. Protesting Democrats held a temporary walkout. The bill now must sit for five days before the Senate can vote on it.

    It is incredible this now. I'm not sure the state is ready for this...opinions?

    ps. I'm betting Haymarket's head is about to explode about right now...

    This is flat out wrong! I live in a right to work state and yes it is true you will get more jobs. However, most will be low paying jobs period. One of the main reasons middle class income has not gone up in over 30 years is the fact that some people have been told the lie that Unions are the reason. No it is not! This country was built on Unions. Please look at Texas most minimum wage jobs created, poor schools, and bad healthcare. I know you all have seen our disaster Rick Perry. He and his minions are behind these problems. Michigan just fell into a sink hole right to work. More like right to give corporations the right to do whatever whenever they see fit.

    My point exactly blame the Unions. Not the bosses that mis-managed the company and paid themselves a ton of money to run those compaines into the ground. The fact is this country needs more Unions. I find it really odd that in Japan it is 22 to1 ratio from Ceo pay to worker and in America it is 245 to 1. Yeah right to work seems to be working real well.


    Anyways its good to see a Texan!

    It's interesting, isn't it? From the same people who want to control women's bodies! If it weren't for unions women would all be at home, barefoot and pregnant. That, ironically, is where many wrong minded ultra-conservatives would like women to be.

    I didn't blame the unions for anything, I simply implied that they did not save Michigan from being brought to the brink of economic disaster. My entire family is based out of Michigan and I lived there for several years. I saw first hand how the left-leaning governor pushed businesses out of the state for damn near 10 years. I saw how union unwillingness to budge exacerbated her idiotic policies.

    My entire point was that it is ridiculous to act as if right-to-work will be any more detrimental than unions were beneficial. Neither structure is perfect, and acting as if either one is inherently better than the other in the modern era is ill-supported.

    Not really. Who is continuing, even after the election, to attempt to ramrod female reproduction control down the throats of America? Even though the majority of Americans support pro-choice. Even though 50 percent of Catholics supported Obama. Who voted against ratification of a U.N. treaty that calls upon countries to ensure disabled citizens receive the same rights and freedoms as their able-bodied peers? (Because, they said, in part that it would support abortion!) The same dickwits that cannot understand that America doesn't accept the reactionary ideals of the Tea Party, Rick Santorum, Glenn Beck, Rick Perry and their ilk.

    These people, this small cabal of ultra-right religionists, who are apparently hell-bent on social engineering an entire nation to conform with their twisted world view, who are intolerant and narrow minded, who are unwilling to recognize views and the wishes of the majority of citizens in this representative democracy, are doing all they possibly can to take the nation backwards. There intentions are evident in all that they say and do. It is thus no surprise to me that these same people who would deny equal rights to women and to people who are disabled would also deny rights to American workers.

    Talking points? Not ****ing likely. Anyone on this board who is familiar with my posts knows that I truly have no political affiliation other than commonsense and equality. More people here seem to be leaning toward commonsense. Some continue to be predictable partisan hacks, partisan hacks who have displayed time and time and time again that they are unable and unwilling to think for themselves.
