10. One has the freedom of choice without such laws now.

That choice: go work in a non-union shop.

Notice also that Snyder didn't touch police or firefighters in this legislation? Why? there is no way he would have gotten the votes for passage. This is nothing more than a stab at the UAW, etc.

Let's be clear: When we undermine the power of unions, we undermine the conditions for all workers, union or non-union. Stats involving right-to-work states prove this out time and time again.

If I were O, I would bring whatever pressure he can, because Michigan is really the last stand for labor rights.
