Right to Work

Did you catch the news from Michigan lately?  Did you see the eloquent arguments from union workers, arguing their point of view?  If not, you can find them here:

From MackinacCenter:

From JobCreatorsSolutions:
"Cutting Up AFP Tent on Michigan Capitol Lawn"

This last video has someone questioning the union scum, and the union scum not having any answers to her questions.


That reminds me of my own union experience.  Yes, I was a member of Hotel and Restaurant Workers Local 122 in Milwaukee a long time ago, for about four years.  The biggest impact the union ever had on me was that it protected drunks from getting fired--even though all of us who worked with the drunks would gladly have fired them.  They simply didn't pull their weight on the job.

So naturally, this news story caught my eye.  From the Detroit News:
"Chrysler reinstates 13 workers fired for drinking on job" by Bryce G. Hoffman

Not enough evidence?  Videotape is not evidence?  Amazing.
