Paying The Bills

Pushing / ramming through a union-busting bill in Michigan; home of the Auto workers. That should get Michigan to be a solid repub state. / snark

Of course I realize that this isn't just about Michigan, but rather of setting a precedent that can be spread to other states.

What I don't get about the bill is that there is an exception for police and firefighters. Don't understand why their union is different.


As if the examples of the Carolinas, Mississippi, Tennessee, Kentucky, and Texas aren't warning enough, now the Michigan lege decides to turn theirs into a "right to work for less with no job security ever" state?
