LANSING, MI (Metro Source) - A group of current and former union members are launching an effort to make Michigan a right to work state. Called Michigan Freedom to Work, the group says they agree unions are helpful, but the lock they have on dues-paying members is preventing more companies from locating in the state. Legislation is pending in Lansing which would outlaw requirements that union workers have to either join a union or pay dues in order to get a job. Opponents of the right to work effort called it an attack on the working and middle class.
