and right to work should be right to work, if one has the ability to do electrical work it should not be the forcing to purchase a year long license to do a job or an insurance policy for a year, these attachments void that right and then again enslave the man to labor for another ganging work. right to work should be unequivocable, it could easily force insurance companies to sell a policy by cost of job itself, for 10.00 say and the insurance can have thier test to qualify individual to their satisfaction, then be fair about it, after all, if the same man would do the job for the conglomerated electrician, why shouldn t he be able to effect it for himslef and the customer
If you want to work for less money, less benefits, and no job security then right to work is right for you.

The top 5 nations on the happiness scale are all the lowest in inequality thanks to high levels of collective bargaining rights. The Koch infested Michigan GOP are Michigan's residents worst enemies.

Still looking for the flood of jobs the GOP said that would come . The only jobs in Michigan are UAW jobs in the Big three. Thanks to the two teir wages from the UAW . And still our unemployment is one of the highest in the USA. Higher fees and taxes and we are number 6 in the nation for the highest fuel taxes. Ya the GOP has done a lot. Remember this in 2014 michiganders.. And I live in lapeer county . I have no clue why it does not show that.

Yes but federal law says that non dues paying scabs have to get everything that the union contract gives true due paying members get. Its a law Republicans made when the first right to so called work State came into effect. I agree non paying people should not get what union dues paying members get. Just another welfare handout to non union SCABS. Living off my union dues. Pure and simple

Yo Pete . ACA was passed In 2010. The republicans have tried to vote it out 40 plus times . The Supreme court made it the law of the land. What part of that don't you understand. BTW as people use it they just might like it . Is that what republicans are afraid of .. Now as for the tea baggers holding the GOP hostage because its the only party they can hijack and their numbers are so small in the house if they held a vote today to fund the government it would pass in the republican house with a huge vote and still fund the ACA.. So for just a small few republican tea baggers holding America and Americans and the house of reps hostage like terrorist because that's what they are for something that is the LAW.... Ya I don't see your useless rant and point. Just remember America and Americans will remember this in November. State and federal elections .....
