    This "chapter" is meant to cut the pay of all working class people. And the chapter after that?

    We all need to remember that the GObP has stated they want an end to minimum wage. If they get their way, all wages will fall accordingly.

    And then what?

    I'm assuming those links in your sig support that statement.

    I'd click them, but then I'd feel dirty.

    Competition is where it's at; let the unions compete!

    If it was as simple as 'unions are great because they get people paid more' then there wouldn't even be a debate about any of this.

    But it's not that simple. A huge price is paid by a lot of unintended casualties because of what unions have become.

    Screw "right to work", let's mandate a "get to work" law.

    Education. Education. Education.


    Learn this, Monkey... Neither side is going to 'win'.

    Just like the skin is morphing from black and white into lovely shades of brown, red and blue must join to make purple. And on this issue, for this state, at this time in history, the young republican fellow is right. If Michigan remains a closed union shop it will cost the state good jobs.

    I see no reason to deny any employee the option to pay dues or not, without losing their job. Especially if they are not satisfied with what the union is doing with their money. Further, a company that underpays it's people pays a price in high turnover and bad public relations.

    I see corporate era dinosaurs in need of a little competitive reform - same as the corporations they're in bed with.
