Freedom To FreeLoad!

"Unions have not only helped build a stronger middle class, but a stronger America." -President Obama

Michigan state Rep. Tim Greimel (D) explains the "right-to-work" laws better than anyone I have heard in this current battle!

While supporters of the bill say it will make for a fairer workplace by making union fees voluntary for non-union workers, Greimel told MSNBC host Chris Jansing that such dues are already voluntary, alluding to provisions in the National Labor Relations Act saying that non-union members who are covered by a collective barganing agreement either join a union or pay what’s called an “agency fee.”

“What this law would do is, it would allow those who benefit from a collective bargaining agreement to avoid paying their fair share,” Greimel said. “That’s why I don’t call it this ‘right-to-work,’ I call it a freedom to freeload law.”

Tim Greimel,

      Scott Walker and the Republicans don't belong to the unions.
