Michigan becomes a “right to work” state, Unions become violent

Michigan has, historically, been a very heavily unionized state because — naturally — of the Big Three automakers’ presence in Detroit.

On Tuesday, Michigan became the 24th state to declare itself a “right to work” locale.  Right to work means: you don’t have to join a union to get a job.

Oddly enough, Michigan simultaneously possesses the highest unionization and unemployment rates in the entire Midwest.  I think even the worst of my trolls can grok that math.

Demorats in Illinois have already promised: “there will be blood.”

[Demorat Doug Geiss mentions the “battle of the overpass.”  You can see that reference here.]

Let’s also view how lovingly and responsibly Leftist and Progressive union people respond to a vote that doesn’t quite go their way:

Steven Crowder set up a tent.  He merely asked questions.  His tent was torn down and he was punched.  Thugs.  Union thugs.  One very interesting comment on the video below:

    They complain about a Republican controlled legislature and Governor passing legislation that they are vehemently opposed to but don’t have the votes to stop it! These THUG, MORON, HATER, HYPOCRITES never once voiced concern when the LIBERALS in DC, RAMMED, illegally, Obama care down our throats with ZERO Conservative votes!

    LIBERALS = HATE, LIES, and HYPOCRISY to the 100th degree!

Call me wacky, but there seems to be very little understanding and acceptance with the Demorat union people involved here.  And correct me if I’m wrong, but don’t Demorats and Leftists and Progressives portray themselves as “sensitive” and “non-violent” and “accepting of all viewpoints” — ?

I seem to find myself confused.  Do I detect just a hint of hypocrisy involved?

Let’s see: the governor of Michigan, Rick Snyder, won the election.  Their legislature won their multiple elections.  Isn’t that exactly how Barack Hussein Obama crowed upon his first election?

The LA Times writes:

Controversial “right-to-work” legislation covering public-sector employees passed the Michigan House of Representatives on Tuesday, bringing it one step closer to being signed into law.

The House passed the bill, 58 to 51, as union opponents of the measure booed inside the Capitol and an estimated 12,000 people rallied outside. The state’s Senate approved the bill last week.

The House is now scheduled to vote on a right-to-work bill for private-sector employees, which would cover Michigan’s auto industry. If that measure passes, Michigan would become the 24th right-to-work state, meaning unions cannot require members to pay dues as a condition of employment.

Mr Obama is — shock of shocks — against this development.

Imagine that.

  1. Let me be further blunt: as a cop, I belong — in Fornicalia — to a closed shop. I don’t have a choice regarding union dues being deducted from my paycheck. It is called an “association.”

    And my “association” is frequently in bed with my county. And yet, despite that, I still have had union dues DEDUCTED from my paycheck for OVER 30 years.

    In the late 1800s and early 1900s, unions were warranted because, generally, working conditions on many jobs ranged from tolerable to execrable. The first unions were formed on railroads because of the working conditions extant. Yes, unions made some good inroads and got the US, basically, to the 40-hour work week.

    That said, unions have had their day and the federal government has adopted the rules and regulations to ensure that most workers are safe and treated civilly.

    Unions, now, are generally a good idea for those workers who find themselves in consistent trouble and/or are lazy, unreliable, inconsistent, unsafe, etc. Union reps take care of those persons. In general, if you do your job you won’t need union representation.

    Michigan is an excellent example of the violence inherent in Leftists and Progressives.

    But — oddly enough — because I am NOT a screw-up, I have not required union representation — again — in over THIRTY YEARS.

    Dues paid to some asshole able to drive a Volvo. To squander my cash on lawyers to defend a presidency.

    But — it’s Fornicalia.

    I am SO going to leave this state behind upon my retirement.

    FU@* Fornicalia.

  2. Another kick in the nards for the Progs; a Federal Court declare Illinois ban on concealed weapons illegal. The legislature has 180 days to put a legal law in place.
    I am so grinning at my perceived reaction of the Chicago/Cook County pols..

  3. Hypocrisy thy name is DEMOCRAT! :-) And if the video is not enough to get people’s attention, then they need to just go look at what happens in a right-to-work state! JOBS!!!

  4. Just in case you have any Libtards trolling your blog, let me share MY opinion of Unions with them and make it crystal clear for them. I HATE UNIONS and every no-good SOB Union official and sorry SLUGS that run the Unions.

    I hope that clears up any previous misunderstanding regarding MY feelings on Unions. :)

  5. Just like how all us rabid Right Wing TEA Partiers riot and punch people out and burn things and trash the environment when we don’t get our way either.

    Oh.

    Yeah.

    That’s right.

    We don’t do that.
