Obama takes on union fight in Michigan

President Obama told employees at Daimler's Detroit Diesel in Redford, Mich., today that lawmakers shouldn't be trying "to take away your right to bargain for better wages."

The comment prompted sustained applause from the largely supportive audience, and came just one day before Michigan's Republican governor, Rick Snyder, is likely to sign so-called right-to-work legislation in the face of union protest.


"These so-called right-to-work laws, they don't have anything to do with economics, they have to do with politics," continued Mr. Obama, who assailed the laws as being about the "right to work for less money."

Right-to-work is the name that proponents have given to legislation that prevents agreements in which employees are required to pay union dues.

Snyder is planning to sign right-to-work legislation Tuesday, making Michigan the 24th state with right-to-work laws on the books, and protesters are set to descend on the state capitol in Lansing. Members of the United Auto Workers Local 600 engaged in civil disobedience training over the weekend, reports the Detroit News, and members of the Michigan Nurses Association plan to gather on the capitol steps with duct tape over their mouths.

UAW President Bob King says that if the measure does pass, the union will consider efforts to recall state lawmakers as well as Snyder, a first-term governor, in a potential repeat of the recall fight that took place last year in Wisconsin.

Supporters of right-to-work laws - largely Republicans and business interests - say workers should have the right not to pay union dues if they don't want to.(They also call the laws "freedom to work.") They also say that right-to-work laws are good for business.

Critics - largely Democrats and unions - say the laws are designed to weaken unions. They argue that if employees are not required to pay union dues, it hurts the union and thus limits the ability of workers to successfully engage in collective bargaining. That results, they say, in lower wages and worse working conditions.

over the cliff we go into the wild red yonder
tax increases across the board for all; but the 47% who pay nothing currently in income tax have the highest increase in all fairness to finally pay their fair share.
the debt ceiling is the ceiling; and no borrowing moving forward.
Michigan Governor makes Michigan a right to work state.
Balanced budget amendment forced to adhering to debt ceiling for next 4 years.
Obama's reelection has made him a radical tea bagger, or as always he is incapable of negotiating anything.
either way.....Mitt could never have all these magnificent changes implemented prior to his term starting like Obama has.
Obama is the best GOP candidate in Washington ever.
In one moth of re-election Obama's accomplishments are:
tax increases for everyone
balanced budget
neutering unions
impossible to implement Obamacare due to balanced budget and govt shutdown
and cut spending in half with his negotiation skill sets
problem with above is Obama demanded the opposite; and gave speeches to prove it.
wonder if Obama will ever learn words fix nothing; and action does.
Pay close attention to the next 20 days or so. John Boehner will anounce that the GOP has agreed to raise taxes on the top 2% and extend the Bush tax cuts to the remaining 98%.

Remember when I told you a month before the election that President Obama would get over 300 electoral votes? Tell me all about how I am wrong now. You are the gift that keeps on giving.

quite funny actually....they voted for change; and 5 weeks later got it.
problem is that they did not see through the forrest because the leaves got in the way; and while running through the ugly forrest they hit every single tree with their face.

I'm not claiming we won. We flat out whooped your @sses. It was on national television. As far as all of the other Revelations Madlibs you keep clucking about, it doesn't even put a ripple in my pond. See there are these things called facts, and the fact is you have been so wrong about everything else you have claimed, that we all view you like some kind of dancing dwarf in a jester's suit that we toss coins at and laugh. Now please wait by the door because Obama's robot army will be by soon to collect your guns and your Bibles. Aaaaah ha ha ha ha ha! Aaaaaah ha ha ha ha!
you whopped your own azz.

it is on national television now

debt ceiling held, going over fiscal cliff; and govt shutdown in January.

Michigan finally wised up and ends the stranglehold of unions.

exactly what did you win?

nothing it would seem.

when you win a scratch off lottery ticket; but purchased an expired ticket to begin with, how can you collect?

it is voided, just like your election win, or was it loss?

I just sure am glad I am the only one responsible for my income; and I live in a global market.

Drones aren't cheap, most of them are based in the Middle East, they'd have to fly 'em back, that itself is treacherous. Their supply chain involves many more states before it reaches the assembly in California. How long are those birds gonna fly without spare parts.
Not to mention some of us have M107s to take out any lighter drones they use. And the cheapest of them, already used by enviro-freaks to harass hunters are easily downed with shotguns.
We are far better armed than the Syrian Islamist goat humpers, who have been holding off all the might of the dictatorship and the Iranian Quds Forces (rated by the US as 2nd best worldwide, we were allies in the Battle of Herat 2001).
Not to mention we'll have a few state NGs with us, and some of them have B-1Bs.

Funny that you mention balls and your face in the same sentence. That explains why you call yourself a tea bagger. It also explains...well you know...all the spooge on your chops.

Also, it's "due" not "do" but then one can't be a magic unicorn warrior in the anti-robot tea party army and a scholar at the same time.

That's nice that you took that little Filipino boy on a fabulous boat ride but you still have a hit ratio lower than a magic 8-ball. I'd be happy to laugh in your face in real life, but be sure to bring a stool so I can look you in the eyes. Now dance you stammering clown of a man. Dance little jester dwarf, for the amusement of the forum. Dance while we toss coins at your funny little bell tipped shoes. Aaaaaah ha ha ha ha ha! Aaaaah ha ha ha!
