Gov. Rick Snyder said he is prepared to sign legislation that would make Michigan the nation’s 24th right-to-work state when the bills get to his desk.
During a news conference today in the state’s Capitol, Snyder said the Legislature will proceed with right-to-work legislation for public and private employees — which would exclude police and firefighters — and that the bills could be introduced today during the lame-duck session.
“The goal isn’t to divide Michigan. It is to bring Michigan together,” the governor said, as hundreds of union protesters stormed the Capitol and the governor’s office, vociferously voicing their opposition to the plan.
