If You Keep Voting For Neoliberals, This Is What Happens – Part 3

This one has been sitting in the “to do” pile (maybe that should be folder) for a while now but the point still stands…

560Lawmakers in the state of Michigan, a cradle of the US labour movement, have passed a law limiting union power, amid mass protests at the statehouse.

Republicans, who control the state legislature, have succeeded in banning a requirement that workers pay union fees as a condition of employment.

Outside, police in riot gear used tear gas to control tensions among a crowd of more than 10,000 protesters.

Passage of the measure makes Michigan the 24th “right-to-work” state.

Bills sent by the House and Senate were signed into law by Michigan Governor Rick Snyder early on Tuesday evening.
