unions are already crippled. the law in michigan just kicked a crutch away and gave workers a right to chose.
wont be long and the union goons will be called into action.
Interestingly, Michigan already had protections in place to workers who don't want to support union political activities don't have to, but they did have to contribute toward the costs of wage and benefit negotiations.
So the point of the law wasn't to allow workers to opt out of political activity they don't agree with - they already had that right.
The point of the law was to cripple unions. Period.
Hell, at least one wingnut has publicly said so:
We fight these battles on taxes and regulation but really what we would like to see is to take the unions out at the knees so they dont have the resources to fight these battles.
The law was pure partisan politics. It had absolutely nothing to do with workers rights.
Is there ANYTHING the right can tell the truth about?
Answer: not if they want to win elections.
