Remember how Democrats and Unions (aren’t they really one in the same?) viciously fought to prevent Michigan from becoming a right to work state?
As you remember, Democrats and their Union allies failed and Michigan passed our right to work law that simply allows employees in a union shop to decide if they want to join a union or not. The good news is, the passage of right to work is beginning to pay off. According to Chief Executive.net, Michigan has moved up two points in their 2013 Best & Worst States for Business CEO survey. Michigan moved up from an appalling 46th place to an embarrassing 44th state for business (Michigan still has a long way to go, but you have to start somewhere) and, according to the survey narratives, Michigan’s right to work law is an important contributor to the positive movement in the survey:
- “Love Michigan becoming a right to work state.”
- “Rated Michigan good because of recent right to work legislation.”
- “MI and IN becoming Right to Work is huge.”
- “Michigan is FINALLY moving in the right direction”
- “Michigan with its new Right to Work laws has gotta be better for business. I like the way they’re going.”
If Democrats and Unions are supposed to be for the “little guy” and the most important thing to a “little guy” is a job, then why do Democrats and Unions constantly oppose reforms that create real jobs and economic growth?
