I dont understand why all the union people on tv are so mad because of a law . That allows the people the right not to pay a union dues against there wills.

I mean come on. I for one am tired of being robbed by unions for union dues . When I do not want anything to do with a union!!!!!

This new law is common sense to me.....

If you want to be in a union fine pay your dues. If not keep your money....

Unions are slowly destroying our jobs. Look at Wonder bread..

But won't you still be paying agency fees that almost equal the union dues under the new law? Non union workers in a union type shop will not feel the love.

One can still buy a window squeegee and go into private business. Plenty of vacant intersections and guilty people.

PS>My friend was besieged by a homeless man begging for $2. She only had a ten and expected change, which was not too smart. Just as she handed the money over a store owner came running out and chased the bum away before he could make change, like he ever was anyway.
Lots of ways to make money.

Union thugs are upset because Right to Work laws means less Union control and less money going going to their marxist/socialist/obamnation politicians. I work in a poultry plant making 11.10/hr. It is non union plant thank God. Union poultry plants don't make any more than I do!

Lets take a discount store thatís open 24 hours as a example of non union places doing business in Michigan. It will soon be like this.

The associates are arrested weekly for stealing from the register, and also for walking out the store with bags full of cell phones and such. They suck up till they get enough credits to go back on unemployment assistance then; they say they hurt there arm, and walk around laughing all day with a broom in the other arm. They tell friends that they cant wait to be fired so they can collect again, and maybe sue.

They get minimum wage. They are promised a bonus if the store does good and no one gets hurt. They never have to pay this 6 month bonus cuz the store doesnt make a profit, or someone gets hurt. They work on holidays except Christmas day.

All this and more awaits all michigan.

OK then. We don't have to change anything. We're already there at the 7/11.

I think the unions have been around mainly so that the lazy coloreds can sleep, steal and get drunk on the job without being fired.

Mrs Kowalski, is your brain stuck in 1940's Deep South? That statement, with all due respect, is probably the stupidest thing I ever read in my life. Unions are not the sole agent of the apocalypse as some would like to think. Of course there pro's and con's to unions. However, for people to say unions aren't needed anymore is pretty extreme. It's fundamentally unfair for a person to not pay union dues yet reap the benefits won by collective bargaining (I.e. paid holidays, excellent wages, pensions etc).

Unions are obsolete, have fun on unemployment, once the checks dry up, you'll be on the street.
