A dubious milestone the taking of $30 million from home health care worker paychecks has been reached and the number is still climbing.
The money taken from the workers by the Service Employees International Union is being taken despite Gov. Rick Snyder signing a law last month prohibiting the practice.
Under a scheme perpetrated while Jennifer Granholm was governor, tens of thousands of so-called home health care workers were railroaded into the SEIU. As a result, dues from the taxpayer-provided checks of those to care for homebound patients has been flowing to the union. Continuation of this practice is called the home healthcare dues skim
Last month, Gov. Rick Snyder signed legislation to stop the skim. It's believed administrative steps are being taken to do so. Capitol Confidential is monitoring the situation.
Meanwhile, the skim-tracker is continuing to compute how much union dues has been skimmed from the taxpayer-provided checks. It will continue its running tally until the actual end of the skim can be verified.
Skim? Skim?? Skim??? How about theft? How about wire fraud? How about SEIU officials spending some time in the Gray-bar hotel getting “serviced” like a bull services a cow.
The people responsible need to be arrested and put on trial. They are now violating a law.
This is one of the reasons I will not yet return to my beloved home of Michigan. No matter how many conservatives live there the leftists do what they want and nobody will take action even though laws are broken.
It’s just “vig”. Nothing to worry about.
