Tag: End Of Labor Control
By JGillman, Section News
Of course we will believe when we see it.
However, this important legislation protecting workers choices would be the shot in the arm for a still ailing Michigan economy. It would create a more competitive atmosphere not only with other states, but would allow the global competitiveness we have previously enjoyed to return. Its about time we do this, yet have faced a number of obstacles that ought not have been there. The election clarified the will of the people sufficiently enough to understand that they are tired of having Michigan run by a few elite labor bosses, and its time for a change.
So when Jack Hoogendyk sends out this note:
"With all this compelling data, and circumstances being as ideal as they have ever been, what is holding up the legislation that has already been written, from being introduced in the House and the Senate?It offers a little hope.
We'll take it where we can.
