Governor: Job Growth Better Than Right-To-Work Law

LANSING (AP) – Gov. Rick Snyder still maintains he doesn’t want Michigan to become a right-to-work state.

The Republican governor says that he doesn’t want to repeat the experiences of Wisconsin and Ohio, where anti-union measures have been extremely divisive.

Snyder says Michigan has taken steps to encourage job growth that will be more useful than a right-to-work law, such as significantly cutting business taxes that will go into effect Jan. 1st.

    Seems like Rick Snyder doesn’t believe that people in Michigan have any rights, nor should they have any. It is an abomination that a supposedly free people should even have to petition any government to reinstate what should be considered natural rights that never should have been trespassed upon. Doesn’t look like a real conservative exists among republicans now or in the recent past.
