Michigan Proposal 2 Results: Voters Reject Collective Bargaining Amendmenthttp://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/11/0 ... 80767.html
Twp points here, and I know how much you love to hate facts...but...
1. Republicans ran promising that Right To work wasn't part of their agenda. They lost seats, so now, in a lame duck session while still in control of the entire state government (including elected school board leaders - more on that in a minute), they are forcing it through, thus lying to the voters.
2. There were several proposals put on the ballot, worded to become "state constitutional" laws. Among them were two for bargaining rights, two giving the govenor near-dictatorial/pharoah-type control to eliminate elected officials and spend money on tax payers dimes without taxpayer ability to have a majority vote or say.

You might want to do some research. You should read the whole thing , and I know i am asking a lot from you , Spacespewer. Didn't I hear a report today that stated only 7% of 8th graders in Michigan are able to read at a 4th grade level and the majority were at a 2nd grade level ??
So much for the great product that your teacher's union
puts out. Now , please resume all your inane name calling. It's become your trademark , asshole.
Incidently, Republicans control the majority of elected schoolboard positions, which run parallel with decline in test scores versus since Republicans controlled the schools.
By the way , do you pay your people union wages and if not , why not ??
Health benefits and pension as well ?
I'm self-employed and am my only employee. Am I supposed to pay union dues to myself? I also pay for my own health insurance and liabilities out-of-pocket and it's expensive as hell. Can't wait for Obamacare to be fully implemented so I can save a little money, having to deal with all of these anti-union-pro-cheap-labor morons.
KEY POINTS – Employees and Right to Work Laws: Wages
· RTW Laws’ effects on wage levels is ambiguous from a theoretical point of view, because unions’ effect on the average wage level is ambiguous.
ALL Right To Work states have the highest poverty rates. It's all about the cheap labor.
· Nominal wages—wages not adjusted for cost of living differences between states—are lower in Right to Work states than they are in non-RTW states.
Lots of factors...one example...home heating and electricity is cheaper in warmer climates and no need for additional infrastructure for starters. Cheap labor and third world country living tends to reflect the depressed geography.
· Moore’s landmark review of Right to Work literature concludes that Right to Work laws do not affect wages.
Department of Labor and Statistics disproves that. ALL Right To work states have the highest poverty rates. It's all about the cheap labor.
· Mishel’s recent 2001 study, which found Right to Work laws negatively affect wages, cannot be relied upon because it assumes Right to Work laws do not affect the composition of jobs within a particular state.
Wrong...once again...it's all about the Cheap Labor.
· The most recent and credible studies on Right to Work laws provide evidence of a very small wage benefit of Right to Work laws of between 0.2 and 2%.
· Since adopting Right to Work laws the two most recent adopters (Oklahoma and Idaho) have had seemingly favorable wage experiences.
· After reviewing all available Right to Work law literature, it appears that Right to Work laws do not have a significantly meaningful positive or negative effect on wages, and consequently other factors should play a larger role in deciding whether or not a state should adopt Right to Work laws.
11 of the bottom 13 states for poverty are Right To Work states. It's ALL about cheap labor.
Automaker Plant Locations:
According to The Industrial Outlook (2003) all new auto plants built in the United States in the last 10 years were built in Right to Work states (Warden). Their findings were not just for 1 or 2 plants, but for a substantial 6 plants. (Nissan in TN & MS, Mercedes-Benz in AL, BMW in SC, Honda in AL, Hyundai in AL, and Mercedes-Benz in GA). Given the fact that only 22 out of 50 states have Right to Work laws, it appears unlikely that all 6 plants were located in Right to Work states due to chance alone. Therefore, it appears as if foreign automakers may be using a state’s Right to Work law status as a factor in determining plant site selection. http://right-to-work-laws.johnwcooper.com/
Yep, they opened up a cheap labor market here to attract foriegn investment to send profits overseas, without paying fair wages or benefits, or allowing for strikes.
Alabama ranks 4th worst in highest poverty rates.
Tennenessee ranks 11th worst for highest poverty rates in America.
Georgia ranks 13th worst state with highest poverty rates.
Mississippi ranks #1 at exactly the bottom for the worst state in America for poverty.
South Carolina ranks 9h for highest poverty rates.
All of the states listed in your article as so-called successes have among the highest poverty rates nationally.
http://www...crooks and liars ?????
Shit , couldn't you find a web site that was just a little more biased ? Oh , wait , doesn't Dan Rather work for them now ? Yep , you're right . I should believe every
word on that site.
Bottom line...The function of Right To Work is ALL about cheap labor and creating high poverty.
Republicans are trying to create a "United Slums of America"."If any man tells you he loves America, yet hates labor, he is a liar. If any man tells you he trusts America, yet fears labor, he is a fool."
-- Abraham Lincoln
"All that harms labor is treason to America."—Abraham Lincoln
Labor unions are traditional American institutions that were created and supported by our founding fathers. Right To Work is spitting directly into the faces of our founding fathers, and ALL who have died for our freedoms. Shame on you...This is the fucking UNITED States of America
and if you don't like it, get the fuck out and take your fucking Republican slum lords with you...
