Supporters Of Michigan Right To Work Consider Options

LANSING (WWJ) – Governor Rick Snyder is on record as being opposed to the idea of the legislature trying to make Michigan a Right to Work state this year, but supporters say they may be able to get around that.

WWJ Lansing Bureau Chief Tim Skubick spoke with Representative Mike Shirkey who would like to turn Michigan into a Right to Work state. As for how to get there – through the legislature or a petition drive – Shirkey said all options are on the table.

“It’s plenty of options available to us to make Michigan a labor freedom state. My preference is legislative action,” said Shirkey.

And when asked at what point he would consider another option Shirkey said, “I’m not prepared to answer that question because there’s still a lot of time.” Shirkey adding, “this is a marathon not a sprint.”

It’s still unclear as to when lawmakers will debate Right to Work.
