Another state will become a ‘Right-to-Work’ state, the one joining the list of other states is none other than Michigan…and of course the union thugs do what they do best, protest in the most despicable of ways…guess they don’t have a clue to why things are backfiring on them…and backfiring in a big way. – Thank goodness we have republican governors!
This is what Gov. Snyder had to say recently in one of his interviews with Neil Cavuto. – This is via FB:
Gov. Rick Snyder (R., Mi.) said his state was going to get right-to-work legislation passed, calling it “pro-worker” and good for the economic development of Michigan in an interview Friday on Fox News.
Massive union protests have met the proposed legislation that could be signed into law by Snyder as early as next week, which would ban labor contracts requiring automatic union payments from employees, whether or not they joined.
“It’s really important for a couple reasons,” Snyder said. “First of all, it’s all about about being pro-worker. We have hardworking people in Michigan, and it’s important to give them the freedom to choose. They should be able to choose whether to join a union or not, and this is about the relationship between a union and workers, not about employers and unions, not about collective bargaining. This is solely focused on their relationship, and shouldn’t people have the opportunity to say they want to belong or not? The second piece is, I think this can be good for economic development for more and better jobs coming to Michigan. We’ve watched closely what’s gone on in Indiana. They’ve seen many more more companies look at Indiana, citing this as one of the factors, the fact that they did it back in February. They can have thousands more jobs in that state, because they became a right-to-work state.”
Snyder rebuffed host Neil Cavuto’s question that some looked at this as being bent on the eventual dismantling of unions.
“If you look at unions in Michigan, they’ve done a lot of great things in our state,” he said. “We’re the center of the labor movement going back the last century. Now I don’t believe it’s appropriate to say, just to keep your job, you have to pay dues and be a union member. So, basically this creates an environment where people can say they’re choosing to join a union because the unions put a value proposition to make it worthwhile, and if the union’s not providing value, someone shouldn’t be forced to choose. So I view this as pro-worker legislation.”
Watch the video below…it’s a good one. (Thanks to Snake Oiler for finding this…so I didn’t have to thru the work I was earlier.)
Then we have this…I don’t know if they can get any lower. – This is via FN:
Disgruntled union workers put their fight against Cablevision over the fight against cancer at a Times Square protest last night.
About 50 members of the Communications Workers of America Local 1109 disrupted a benefit for cancer research at the Hard Rock Cafe, carrying signs and blaring music as attendees streamed in.
Cablevision CEO James Dolan, whose rock band performed at the event, told The Post that the workers’ actions are “despicable.”
“They think being disruptive for their personal gain is more important than beating pancreatic cancer,” he said. “Their values are twisted. I’m surprised at the depth of their lowness. Everyone who deals with them should take note. It’s shameful.”
The benefit was expected to raise $1.75 million for the Lustgarten Foundation, which funds pancreatic-cancer research.
The foundation is named for Cablevision exec Marc Lustgarten, who died of pancreatic cancer in 1999. Cablevision pays all the foundation’s administrative costs, and the foundation says that all the money raised last night will go to research.
I say…’Hey, Hey, Ho, Ho, Union Thugs Have To Go!’ – How ’bout you?
