Michigan working families deserve state ballot vote for their economic future
Pittsburgh (Dec. 11) – President Leo W. Gerard of the United Steelworkers (USW) issued the following statement today in an appeal to common sense economics over politics as a Michigan lame-duck legislative session by Republicans rams through a ‘right-to-work-for-less’ bill for a promised signature by Gov. Rick Snyder.
“The USW active and retired members join other unions and allies in Michigan and across the nation to call on Gov. Snyder to support the proposal of the state’s Democratic congressional delegation. We ask the Governor to use his veto power to stop this unnecessary and divisive right-to-work bill.
“If the Governor feels this bill will move Michigan forward, he should delay the final legislative votes and allow an amendment that would put this issue before the public as a state ballot initiative. We urge Governor Snyder to delay his signing of the bill. Let the people of Michigan debate and vote on a consequential matter that will affect all working families.

5. He is
part of an extremist right wing Party that has declared War on America. You cannot compromise with these people. The unions was right there with President Obama in our negotiations at the Whitehouse, when they told President Obama not to cut Social Security,Medicare and Medicaid. The Unions were one of the primary reasons that helped President Obama in the Midwest. The only thing they know how to do is dictate and bully their way. That is whats happening with this fiscal Cliff thing. They have no leverage there and President Obama needs to deal with these people accordingly. This guy came in and got elected in 2010. He is bought and paid for. We have to break these people. The Republican Party is doing this all over the country. He want dare put it up for a vote, because he is essentially saying it is my way or the highway. I also think these police officers need to pick sides. There is nothing holding these police officers Union from putting pressure on this Governor either. Why want they strike?

4. Yeah, like that's going to happen.
Snyder's an ass. He tried to portray himself as a nerd, a middle of the road politician when in fact once he was elected he started his war on the rest of us. He's a millionaire many times over and just because he's from Ann Arbor doesn't mean he's liberal.
Many voters got hoodwinked. I know several of them who voted for him who were Democrats.
