Michigan approves right-to-work legislation amid intense protests

Union MadeThe Michigan Legislature on Tuesday gave final approval to contentious “right-to-work” legislation, in the face of raucous protests in the capital and stern warnings from Democratic lawmakers.

“There will be blood, there will be repercussions,” State Democratic Rep. Douglas Geiss, speaking on the House floor on Tuesday, warned ahead of the votes.

The final votes on the House side Tuesday deliver a blow to the labor movement in the heart of the U.S. auto industry. The measures ban unions from demanding dues from workers.

One bill dealt with public sector workers, the other with government employees. Both measures cleared the Senate last week, and are expected to be signed by Republican Gov. Rick Snyder as early as Wednesday.

Michigan approves right-to-work legislation amid intense protests

If you’re a long-time reader of this blog you already know where I stand regarding labor Unions and the GOONS, CROOKS and THUGS that run them.

If you happen to one of the recent rash of libber scumbags that have taken a sudden interest in the blog, let me make it crystal clear for you. I HATE UNIONS and every no-good SOB Union official and sorry SLUG that belongs TO a Union.

I hate the Democratic Party for many reasons, but the above words from State Democratic Rep. Douglas Geiss makes it perfectly clear to me that Democrats as a whole, and these Democratic CLOWNS in Michigan in particular, are nothing more than anarchists that are acting like spoiled little BRATS, throwing a fit because they didn’t get their way.

And the biggest *cheer leader* for the Dem/Libbers and their entitlement fits is none other than U.S. President Barack Hussein Obama; the man who never met a Muslim or Socialist he didn’t love or a tax he wouldn’t impose.

According to Obama Right-To-Work Laws Mean ‘Right To Work For Less Money’, but you have to take this into consideration, Obama has never held a REAL JOB in his entire life.

There have been some violent confrontations in Michigan today, it was all over the news at noon here in the Dallas area, but did you hear a word from the Democratic POTUS about it? Did you hear ANY condemnation from Obama or ANY Democratic leadership?

You won’t hear any condemnation from the Dems, they NEED their Union supporters, think *crooks and thugs*, to keep the Democratic Party line running and producing even more Democrats, a vile and nasty bunch that rely on government to support them and vice versa, all the while milking some weak-minded rank and file members for every last dollar they can get so Union leadership can vacation in the finest places, eat the best food, live in homes that look like palaces and use the members money for only God knows what kind of nefarious business dealings.

Right to work isn’t about ‘working for less money’ as Obama says, right to work is about busting closed shops, busting the Union and the CRIMINALS that run them while allowing a man or woman to actually make a decent living wage without having the Union RAPE them on a weekly basis.

In MY not so humble opinion ALL Unions need to be busted and the strong-arm thugs that run them need to be thrown in jail.

    Let’s be blunt:

    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.

    Right. Let’s not talk. Let’s just threaten people and hit them.

    In my years as a state trooper and having to deal with union protests I learned one thing, give em back what they give. When union thugs super glued our patrol car locks or put roofing tacks out for us, we sent our own guys to do the same to the union boss. It didn’t take many times of the union bosses wife and kids calling with stuck locks and flat tires and he called his goons off.
    I like how Marriott negotiates with the unions. They give the unions whatever they can agree on then give the nonunion folks twice as much.

    Unions = Obama’s Brown Shirts!

    If the unions were so great, they would have nothing to fear. Workers would voluntarily pay dues to the union instead of refusing to join. Too many union people can’t see beyond their union. It’s not the union that gave them a job or signed their paycheck. When their plant closes down, the union bosses are always taken care of with other union job offers but the rank and file are left to fend for themselves.

    My brother-in-law had a very good job at a steel mill back in the early 80′s. He was a union guy though and through. The union went on strike and he was there supporting the picket line and throwing things at trucks as the tried to enter the plant. Unable to come to an agreement with the union, the steel mill closed down and he watched his union leaders get taken care of while him and a couple hundred other men were left to themselves and unemployment. He learned the hard what what unions are all about and now he can’t stand them. Today, he’s a good God fearing, gun owing, conservative.

    Unions did, in fact, have a reason for their existence and they were needed - at that time.

    Now, the appearance of a Union will more often than not start signalling the slow rotation of the business above the proverbial drain (see: Hostess). If a company makes a widget, and makes it well, that company will be profitable. If the workers unionize, then the union is going to start demanding more money for the workers - causing the cost of the widget and therefore the price to necessarily increase. When the price of the widget is higher than the people will pay for it, the widget maker loses money and eventually closes down, allowing another person, who also makes widgets, to get the business instead. Until the workers unionize …

    Imagine that.

    Union higher-ups take care of themselves and no one else.

    There seems to be something of a consensus that there was a time when unions were needed or useful and such. If the unions had not been in collusion with the government I would agree. Voluntary associations may be helpful in bringing management’s attention to “deplorable and execrable” working conditions. I’m thinking maybe our history books were written by NEA teachers. There is nothing in the arena of government’s legitimate power that gives a single union 100% bargaining authority in a given industry or shop. Nor is there anything in government’s legitimate power that authorizes it to say I cannot work unless I pay dues to that monopoly of union thugs.

    When I was in college I took a job as a “scab” working in a warehouse. The company had been unionized by the teamsters and they immediately went on strike for higher wages. Meantime there were people lined up around the block trying to get those same warehouse jobs because they were some of the best paying in the city.

    I’ve lived in a closed shop state and I’ve worked in a RTW state. When I left the closed shop state there were thousands of people unemployed at $20-25 per hour. When I came to the RTW state the unemployment rate was so low as to be indiscernible, but the wages for the same kind of work was about $7 lower. I would rather work at $15 per hour than be unemployed at $22.

    Here is the simple economics of the situation. When there is lots of demand for a company’s product or service and it cannot keep up with that demand, the cost of labor will go up. When demand for that product or service goes down, so must wages. Unions don’t understand that. They want their wages (and retirement contributions from the employer) to go up regardless of business. The result is Braniff Airlines and Hostess.

    Protests in Michigan supply more evidence that the herd needs to be culled. Unions today are nothing more than an offshoot of the Communist Party. The enemy within.

  9. Bunkerville says:

    I recall in school learning about”feather bedding”. It sounded so strange a term, but I learned what destroyed the railroads. How many schools are teaching this term today? Bet none.

  10. Katie says:

    The minute that the unions became violent they lost all “moral” authority. Let every state be “Right to work” and the unions have to compete for employees. (I hate the word workers.)

    It’s Chicago politics all the way now.

    Batten down the hatches!
