The union has no place in the Day Care industry. Dayton should not have singed it into law. I hope the courts side with the people not the unions.

This isn't about "allowing" a vote. Day care owners already have the right to join a trade association or a union. The legislation basically changed the rules to guarantee the outcome of the vote. To do this, they had to classify people who own their own daycare as state employees. This is so wrong on so many fronts. Who is next, grocery store owners because they accept food stamps? Doctors because they accept Medicaid? Roosevelt, the father of Unions, only supported private sector unions and warned of the dangers of public sector unions. If we take this step, almost anyone could be classified as a state employee and forced into a government union. We simply cannot afford this, financially and morally. $30 million bought and paid for this Governor and legislation. With access to all sorts of other professions, it will guarantee more political paybacks. Is this what we really want Minnesota?
