    Anonymous is so misinformed on this legislation it hurts. Currently, Unions in Michigan are required to provide legal representation to everyone in their specific profession, members and non-members. In exchange for this representation, non-members pay a service fee to the union. Under this RTW legislation, unions still have to provide legal representation to members and non-members, the difference is non-members do not have to pay a dime in exchange for this representation unions LEGALLY have to provide. This naturally leads to the mindset of 'why pay when I can get the services for free', which will ultimately render the unions ineffective (due to a lack of funding) for those workers who still CHOOSE to have unions represent them. Conveniently, it also renders them ineffective as political foes as well. Regardless of whether or not unions are doing their job, this legislation is not the answer.

    Anyone who thinks the process to pass this RTW is Un-American then those people are the same one's who were cheering when OWE-BOMA Passed his Health Care Bill in the back-rooms of DC and kept the Republicians out.Hmm many have a short memory on how things work these days.....It's OK for Dems to do it but not Repubs.....

    what was rushed about it. It has been in process for almost 2 years. The only thing that this bill does is that it puts the union leadership to work instead of having a chushy job. I see it as a bigger win for those union members who had no voice on how their unions are ran. Now they can speak by quitting their union. If the unions are doing their jobs and listening to their members, this law would not be needed.
