Snyder administration to hire right-to-work rules enforcer

Detroit News Lansing Bureau


Lansing ó Gov. Rick Snyder's administration is hiring an attorney to enforce the new right-to-work law who will be required to pay state bar association dues while enforcing a law making union dues optional.

The Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs plans to hire an attorney and legal secretary to implement the law that takes effect March 27 prohibiting union contracts from requiring employees to financially support the union as a condition of employment, agency spokesman Jason Moon said.

The administrative law specialist, dubbed a "freedom to work specialist," will be paid between $76,000 and $106,000 annually, depending on their experience, Moon said.

The Michigan Civil Service Commission requires all administrative law specialists to be dues-paying members of the State Bar of Michigan, Moon said.

1. The dictator has hired an enforcer.

And will pay him at least twice what most people make. Lovely. How many years of college to become "freedom to work specialist"?

6. I feel bad for Michigan

The man lied to the people that elected him, normally I wouldn't pity them because people voted for him but if I am remembering correctly he said during his campaign he was against Right to Work. I read on Mother Jones that he has a 33% percent approval rating, which if that is truly accurate he'll probably be voted out.
