While this is going on out side, the Michigan House passed the bill to make Michigan a "Right to Work for Less" state. Folks, this is HUGE. Michigan has a rich tradition of labor fighting for workers rights and fair wages.
We must not let this bill pass in the state that unions built. There is still one hurdle for it to clear, and that is Governor Snyder. We must make it clear that if he signs this bill it will be the end of his political career. How do we do that? Flood his office with calls. Here's how:
1. Call the Office of the Governor: (517) 335-7858
2. Say something like this:
Hi, my name is _________, from ___________.
As a Michigan citizen, I believe the "Right to Work" legislation currently making its way through the Michigan Legislature is not a solution for the problems faced by the people of Michigan today.
"Right-to-Work" laws lower wages without creating jobs. Michigan has just started recovering from the 2008 economic downturn, and unions are going to be a key part of continuing the state's proud history of manufacturing and labor.
I ask Governor Snyder, as my elected representative in Lansing, to veto any "Right to Work" legislation that comes to him for signature.
It's that easy, and it will be the difference. Make the call now-- then tell all your friends.
