Lansing, Michigan—Today the Michigan House will vote on repealing the state’s right-to-work law.
The law—which has been in place for ten years—gives hard working Michiganders the choice of whether or not to join a labor union. After the announcement was posted, Americans for Prosperity-Michigan released the following statement from State Director Annie Patnaude:
“The majority in Lansing has made it clear that worker freedom plays second fiddle to rewarding special interests. Instead of respecting workers’ right to choose union membership, lawmakers would rather strong arm private sector workers. The irony is that according to the AFL-CIO, union membership in Michigan grew after the state passed right to work—proof that freedom is good for everyone. This is yet another step backward for Michigan.”
