Right to work economic impact
Mon, 10 Dec 2012 22:23:08 GMT —
State legislators are expected to return to Lansing tomorrow when house and senate passage of right to work legislation is expected to head to the governor's desk for passage.
Many groups already planning protests to voice their displeasure with right to work laws.
Michigan State Police plan to be at the capitol over the next couple days to enforce rules.
The bills would prohibit requiring non-union employees to financially support unions at their workplace.
Supporters say doing so would bring more jobs to Michigan. But opponents say it's intended to weaken unions.
Right to work is predominantly in the south where states like Tennessee are housing foreign auto makers like Mercedes and Nissan. Those opposed say Michigan unions will crumble. And supporters say new business will come and rescue a struggling economy.
Protestors are arriving at the capitol by the busload tomorrow in an attempt to stall the decision by Governor Rick Snyder.
