so those who go to work everyday, work long hours and try to raise a family and get a tax refund at the end of the year because they do not make alot of money do not deserve any of the benefits? I make a very decent living and pay alot in taxes but I believe its everyones right to benifits of our government. You might be rich or you might be poorbut alot of people forget how lucky they are to live here in the United States of America.
people who work everyday, work long hours pay income taxes. Tax refunds are given when you overpay through withholding and they refund part of the overpayment. typical Dim voter, not even aware that money withheld from their paychecks is paying income taxes. They think because they get a small refund, they have not paid taxes.

No, it's done through the National Labor Relations Board.
So how long would the so called "lawsuit" take if it goes before the board? A day? 2 weeks? Months?

Right to work states have a lower unemployment rate. This is not a coincidence.
Even Fox News mentioned that wages have fallen in Indiana after they went to a Right to Work state.

They also have much higher poverty rates, higher numbers of uninsured people, a poorer education system, and on and on. RTW states are great for drawing employers who love to treat people like shit and pay them like shit. Most of the "RED" states are RTW states and their citizens generally fare much worse than those non-RTW states.
You forgot RTW states also have a higher rate of workers injuried on the job.

I'd say wages being down $1,500 is a fair trade for thousands of people who were unemployed.

you have no point. A chamber is not a union, they are not collectively bargaining for anything. Workers can have associations all they want, but employment at a company should not have a requirement to join any union, just as being in business does not require you to join any trade associations.
Yes they do collectively barganing. It is just they do their barganing with Congress, it is called lobbying. And they have tons of money to spend on lobbying

Right-to-Work Policy
Mackinac Center analysis indicates a right-to-work bill would do the following:

Right-to-work means that unions can't require an employee be fired for declining to pay union dues or agency fees, while maintaining a union's ability to collectively bargain.
Right-to-work offers in-state opportunities for young workers. Between 2000 and 2011, right-to-work states have seen an increase of 11.3 percent in the number of residents between the ages of 25-34, according to the Bureau of the Census. Non-right-to-work states, over that same period of time, have seen an increase of only 0.6 percent.
Right-to-work means increasing wages. Private-sector, inflation-adjusted employee compensation in right-to-work states has grown by 12.0 percent between 2001-2011, according to data taken from the Bureau of Economic Analysis and Bureau of Labor Statistics. That compares with just 3.0 percent over the same period in forced-unionization states.
Right-to-work means low unemployment. Between 1999 and 2009, non-farm private-sector employment grew 3.7 percent in right-to-work states, but decreased 2.8 percent in non-right-to-work states. Further, the vast majority of jobs created during the Obama administration have been in states with a right-to-work law. According to the National Institute for Labor Relations Research, right-to-work states (excluding Indiana, which passed a right-to-work law in early 2012)“were responsible for 72 percent of all net household job growth across the U.S. from June 2009 through September 2012.”
Right-to-work makes states more attractive for business. States with right-to-work laws dominate the “Top States for Business,” as determined by CNBC. For 2012, nine out of the top 10 best states for business are right-to-work states.

A flat tax rate across the board is needed. Not one based on income. It made me sick when I learned what percentage Romney (upper class) pays in versus what I do (middle class). The upper class has no need for tax breaks. Period.
Agree.

The bottom line is, nobody should be forced to join a union to get a job. Nobody should be forced to give money to an organization that gives 92% of their political contributions to one party. This is a FREE country. I think I need to repeat that word. FREE.

Michigan = 9.1% unemployment. Michigan = one of only 5 states whose average household income is lower than it was in 2004. That's 8 years ago. In 8 years, average household income is down. Thats sad. Get the unions out.

Lets talk about what else unions do. They do a great job of keeping people from losing their jobs when they do drugs and drink beer on their lunch break all caught on videotape. I guess that's good for America.

If you think workers should be forced to pay money to a union that protects these types of people and spends thousands if dollars in legal fees to protect these types of people you are out of your effing mind. Free Michigan!

Mr. Taylor. Why do you continue to encourage these Republican party lemmings? Do you really think you'll convince them of anything? These people are just angry and miserable people who live to argue on an anonymous gossip website. They live in their own world and you're never going to convince them of anything the don't hear inside their News Corp bubble. The main poster is so deranged with his obsession of needing someone to focus his hatred on, that he has to post under your name backwards. These Fox News lemmings are only getting more angry as their party becomes more and more irrelevant. If you really want to irritate them, just ignore the postings and let them wallow in their misery.

Workers already have a federally-protected right to decline union membership and only pay the portion of dues that is directly related to bargaining and servicing a labor agreement. There's no huge outcry of workers desperate to disassociate with unions - the right-to-work movement is financed almost solely by big business and the GOP who are intent on weakening worker rights.
