I have seen on television the union worker violence in Michigan occasioned by the advent of right-to-work legislation. There was destruction of property, assault of a newsman and intimidation of citizens exercising their First Amendment rights. If that represents union membership, Michigan is welcome to keep them. We do not need those thugs and criminals in South Carolina.
The issue at stake was not collective bargaining, right to organize or wages. It was the right to force every employee at a represented plant to contribute dues to the union regardless of whether they supported the union or not. That would be an infringement on how an employee chose to spend their earned income. Thankfully, the right-to-work legislation passed and was signed into law by a governor who represents the best interests of the majority of Michigan employees and, by extension, the state of Michigan. Let’s keep it that way here as well.
