    Workplace safety is regulated by the state and the feds, by legislation, it's not a union thing. But yes, it means I have the option of taking a job in my chosen field for less pay and/or less benefits if it suits me. It also means I can take a job for more pay and benefits than are offered in the union shop. Or different benefit/pay mixes that suit me.

    Snyder, who previously had said repeatedly that right-to-work was "not on my agenda," says he will sign the measures.

    Most of that came through legislation and applies to all, union and non-union business. Take your own advice - do some homework.

    American unions have such a proud history and tradition of honesty, integrity and treating their members with great respect much like the mafia and Noreth Korean police.
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.

    Still dodging that you mis-spoke (to put it gently) regarding the lame duck/legislative mix change. This bill passage is not being done in lame duck session because it couldn't be done in the new legislature as you assert. The new legislature is still on the side of the RTW law.

    Too funny! You tell someone to research the history of these laws while you try to infer that union efforts had no connection with those laws.

    Wow!

    You are asserting that the new Dems (4) are on the "side" of RTW?

    The burden of proof is yours.

    your opinion, to which you are certainly entitled, as wrong as it may be...everyday, there are lobbyists in washington, and the various state houses, groups like ALEC, crossroads gps(oh, don't let me forget the likes of grover norquist and the koch brothers) trying to weaken labor laws, work place safety rules, ....unions like the one i belong to, the UAW, are there to counter them....republicans can't stomach the fact that they are opposed on this. hence there attempts gut and destroy labor...it really is that simple....destroy labor, and destroy the only viable opposistion to republicans. that is the purpose behind 'right to work' for less money, less benefits, less workplace safety, and no voice in the workplace, and it has nothing to do with the terms 'right' or as governor snyder has been saying 'freedom', and everything with installing a failing republican party in the whitehouse and state houses for the next several elections.
