Groups vow to push ‘right to work’ in other states

Source: Washington Post

The conservative groups that supported Michigan’s new “right to work” law — winning a stunning victory over unions, even in the heart of American labor — vowed Wednesday to replicate that success elsewhere.

But the search for the next Michigan could be difficult.

National unions, caught flat-footed in the Wolverine State, pledged to offer fierce opposition wherever the idea crops up next. They consider the laws a direct attack on their finances and political clout at at time when labor influence is already greatly diminished.

In addition, few Republican governors who could enact such legislation seem eager to bring the fight to their states.

“There is not much of a movement to do it,” Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett told a Philadelphia radio station this week, according to the Associated Press. His lack of enthusiasm was shared by two other governors who have battled with unions, Wisconsin’s Scott Walker and Ohio’s John Kasich.

1. ALEC needs to be exposed, indicted, sentenced to DEATH.

 

Corporations are people. It's time to treat them as such.

2. Good

When they succeed and Americans see what they wrought, there will be reckoning they won't be able to avoid.

3. None of them Will Admit They Are Planning it Until it is a Fait Acomplis

Just like in Michigan, the governors will pretend to oppose it until the last minute, then it passes and nobody can stop it.

4. Snyder lied about wanting it. I believe Walker is lying too.

We cannot put our guard down and MUST elect labor-friendly (union and non-union) Governors and statehouses.
