A major blow to unions and one of the biggest union states in the country protests at the state capital in Michigan after the state legislature that.
Pastor -- to woke laws.
The government says he's gonna sign it to putting Michigan on track to become a -- -- -- state urine is absolutely furious business.
I voted -- -- you have again for joining us.
Now -- -- -- -- show all of the market loss on default public policy he is in Michigan let me get things real straight -- If you have a right to -- states then membership in the union becomes fallen tree that's what it means right.
Almost do it actually membership of the union is always voluntary what like to work means is that workers have the option to.
Hey union or not and still keep their jobs here at -- -- to membership but they're still stuck paying for something that they probably don't want.
-- -- not want.
In Wisconsin what really delivered a blow to the unions was that the state would no longer collect union dues.
What does the legislation in Michigan say about state collection of union dues for brings -- municipal workers.
For its future is -- already has a law that upper -- its dues -- but that's just for teachers what this would do and it's unlike Wisconsin is this applies to both the private sector.
And the government sector unions and says that not only that the state is not going to.
Do the dues -- but that workers can actually choose whether or not they wanna pay the union -- it.
And the soon to be 26 forced unionism oh -- not right what states -- union can actually get a worker fired for not paying them.
Well okay now why is Michigan doing this I'm told that it's because neighboring Indiana became right to look.
And attracted a whole bunch of jobs and Michigan's kinda jealous so they want to fall in line is that the reason.
Outlets work -- been kicked around in Michigan for up for decades but -- and Indiana went right to work.
Michigan took a look at that said hey what's -- right to work states they have lower unemployment they have bigger population growth.
They have bigger wage growth and manufacturing cost of living they have higher wages.
We have to do something to compete because our neighbor right next door is going right to work and they're gonna attract business we want some of those businesses to stay here.
So Indiana going writes what probably played a big part in lawmakers' decisions you why give workers the freedom to choose that yes.
Now all we did certain that the governor will sign it in Michigan.
The governor has said he is gonna sign it for us is the beginning of his administration -- it wasn't on his agenda.
Last week he said it was yesterday at a press conference with -- senate majority leader of the speaker of the house.
And they all said they are behind right -- work they are pro worker.
And today are giving that freedom to the workers in this great state.
Is there anything that the unions can do about it in Wisconsin had a recall votes can do anything somewhat in Michigan.
-- you're probably gonna see this drag out for the next few years once the law once the law is signs and it's enacted it'll probably be on Tuesday when that's gonna happen.
But for the next -- years the unions are gonna fly to get right to work on the ballot and a fight -- they are.
So a lot of this issue is not going away and we're going to be talking about it probably get a whole lot of November 20 -- and I'm out of time but look at the end of the day you think Michigan becomes a right to -- state yes on them.
Tuesday Michigan is like to work for it workers can have a free images okay I've -- -- a -- -- always a pleasure thanks for joining us thank you thanks Kevin yeah.
