Right-to-Work Town Hall Roundup: Week Two
Welcome to week two of the Right-to-Work Town Hall Tour!
March 12th to March 16th, AFP-Michigan made stops in Brighton, Traverse City, and Farmington.
In Brighton, Jim Perialas joined the panel to discuss how he lead the teachers of Roscommon in decertifying from the MEA.
“When government becomes too big, it becomes unresponsive to its citizens. The union got too big, and it wasn’t serving its membership… Already the quality of service our union members are getting is higher.”
In Traverse City, Hagerstrom recognized union members who have worked hard for the past several years for the freedom to work movement in Michigan. These liberty-minded, pro-union, anti-forced unionization men have worked closely with AFP-Michigan over the past several months to educate Michiganders about the real economic benefits of right-to-work.
“Right-to-work means Michigan is ‘open for business’ again,” explained Professor Lewis Butler. “The lowest unemployment rates in the United States are in right-to-work states… Growth in manufacturing is happening in right-to-work states. ”
