Democrats try to stop Michigan 'right-to-work' law

(CNNMoney) - Several prominent Michigan Democrats met with Republican Gov. Rick Snyder on Monday in an effort to convince him not to sign the "right-to-work" bill expected to pass the legislature.

The legislation, which cleared some legislative hurdles last week, is expected to get final approval Tuesday. It would allow workers at union-represented employers to not pay dues even though the union would be bargaining on their behalf.

    Michigan, the new rethuglican plantation. The wages are already low here. What will they do next??? And all of these people wanting to do away with the unions are the rich Oakland County execs. You know the ones whose teenagers drive BMW's to school.

    If we lose the unions, we're in BIG trouble.

    Why does anyone who is not in top 2% vote for any republican?I vote for my pocketbook interest and giving tax cuts to wealthy/multi-national corporation who take our jobs overseas and pay little or no tax to pay for Defense who protects them all over the world is not my interest. Unions = people power, Ask 26% low paying workers who were in Rommeys 47%. how they feel about unions?
