Michigan legislature passes right-to-work in spite of union protests. It was an exciting day here in Michigan. Both the House and the Senate passed right-to-work legislation while Democrats threw hissy fits and paid union protestors screamed obscenities. At one point eight union thugs tried to rush the Senate floor and had to be tear-gassed and arrested. Meanwhile, President Obama weighed in by calling the legislation a “roll-back” of worker rights… even though it’s actually an addition to worker rights. That’s why it’s called “right-to-work,” Mr. President. Finally, after decades of having no rights, conservatives in unions won’t have to support Democrats with their union dues anymore.
