After a hard-fought battle for right-to-work legislation in Michigan, Gov. Rick Snyder sat down with the conservative grassroots network organization FreedomWorks, to discuss how the bill came to be and what is in store for the unions.
Snyder signed the bill into law touting it as a victory for the working people of Michigan. Unions and their supporters have already threatened they will fight back.
“I took what I believe is the right position,” said Snyder. “This is great legislation. This is about jobs for Michiganders.”
Snyder explained that the legislation wasn’t about being anti-union, but about the unions providing a value in exchange for membership dues. “It could also create an environment where unions, if they see people not contributing, hopefully it will provoke a discussion to say what do they need to do to be more innovative.”
