Guess what? That is on the ballot again this time, and if it passes it be in the constitution and never go away.
“Question: In Michigan, is a simple majority on a ballot enough to cause an amendment, or is a super-majority needed either by public or State Legislature vote?”
Simple majority! It is scary indeed.
If it passes in MI, and I fear that it will, then it will be brought to many more states. This is the first state in a long line of Dominos!
The truth is the union leadership knows the majority of people don’t want/need a union. They know that means a end to their six-figure salaries for doing nothing. They need to protect that.
I doubt it... or they could of done it ages ago.
Actually, I'm enjoying the discussion and the thoughtful points made by others. You should join in the discussion. I would think being alone in the school yard would be, well, lonely for you.
Let's start. I view the right to organize as a basic freedom and a conservative view. I don't look at the results of the process as cause to curtail rights. In my conservative mind, you find out where the process has broken down and fix it. I view the process as having broken down by the corrupt politicians that accepted campaign contributions and then compromised the best interest of the public.
Again, please, join the discussion. FR is about conservative friends discussing positions. I've taken a contrarian view, I realize that and I certainly dont' expect everyone to agree with it. It is just a little difficult to deal with "nan na nah na na na" as a rebuttal.
