Snyder in two years has totally screwed up this State. If people do not want to work in a union shop, no one is making them. There are plenty of non-union they can work in. Snyder is trying to prevent Unions from donating to the Democrat Party is all. Itís ok the Republicans have Karl Rowe, numerous Super Pacs, Big Banks, Wall Street, the Hertigate Foundation, Better Business Bureau, the Koch Brothers and Sheldon Anderson, tho.

Snyder has undone, in two years, 100 years of Unions in Michigan.

If a company wants to hire someone to work for them ,and that person does not want to join a union,then what does the union have to say about it.The unions have ran a lot of companies out of the north, to the south, where there is the right to work .I know several auto companys have come to Miss.and Ala..If they are having to pay 35 or 40 dollars an hour up there,and move to the south ,they can hire plenty of workers for 15 or 20 dollars and hour.
