"Proposal 2 that would have made right-to-work laws unconstitutional. It was soundly defeated in last month's election..." -- Please tell me how FORCING a worker to pay union dues is constitutional? I guess the Dems could do a WI and FORCE MI taxpayers to pay millions for a recall election.

Working for someone is between the employee and the employer. What right does a union have to set themselves up as the gateway to that job? If a union is such a great thing they had better effectively communicate to the employee (the person paying the dues) that they have worth. They are not doing a very good job of that. Time to rethink and regroup, guys.

Then that employee and employer can negotiate pay, benefits. They certainly would not think to expect the hard won benefits the union has provided for the dues-paying employees. Fair share.

Great day for the something-for-nothing folks and general freeloaders. What a joke. Nice name too, should've been called the "Get union representation without paying dues" bill. Typical right-wing double-speak and misrepresentation..
