In private meeting, top Dems pointedly tell Gov. Snyder: Right to work push means years of all out war: http://wapo.st/122X7Q1


Greg Sargent ‏@ThePlumLineGS

Dems also explained to Gov Snyder how unions work, and that RTW really means "right to work for less"

MT @HotlineAlberta: if you really believe Snyder is "seriously" weighing Dem concerns, here's his tweet after meeting: https://twitter.com/onetoughnerd/status/278171059692400640

Freedom to Work is all about creating more and better jobs in Michigan. Learn more about it: http://ow.ly/fYnyX

Unless Rick Snyder is talking about the freedom to gut the wages of Michigan’s workers, he’s not telling the truth. http://tnat.in/fYmie #1u

1. Michigan union workers are steadfast and tough. This is a critically important issue to watch.

Folks in Michigan are unfortunately very used to long fights.

But isn't that what the GOP counts on? Long fights to wear down the spirit of working people?

Go Michiganders! We are with you!

4. K&R

State and local brawls like this are where Unions need to spend their time and money. Washington DC Inc. is a lost cause for now.

7. why is michigan being targeted? because it was for so long the stronghold of organized labor.

 

it's like sherman's march, they want to burn the house of labor & salt the ground.
