Two Michigan school districts reportedly closed shop Tuesday after teachers called out, likely so they could participate in union protests tied to the expected passage of "right-to-work" legislation this week in the state capital.
Demonstrators have already started to march down the streets, as lawmakers return to put the final touches on legislation that would bar unions from demanding dues from workers. The move would make Michigan the 24th "right-to-work" state and strike a blow to organized labor in the heart of the U.S. auto industry.

Did you all notice the sea of “RED” shirts around the rotunda in Michigan? The Marxists and their useful idiots are out in force.
So much for "doing it for the sake of the children." (That crap won't work this time.)

She tweets. “The tent for AFP was torn down unions cheered, police on horseback came through, more police, now mounted police again.”
Doesn’t the school district get paid by the attendance records of the public school in question?? YES, therefore Every person that chose to participate in this action is DIRECTLY STEALING MONEY from the State and should all be charged for it. Garnish The Wages of the entire bunch to recoup lost funds, then Charge them all with with Felony Child Abuse, for refusing to teach the children as required under current law. then FIRE THE WHOLE BUNCH.
So teachers that are supposed to be educating our children to have the knowledge and skills to get jobs, are against those same children having the right to work, with out having to pay a union for the privilege????

Gotta love the unions and their “right to ditch work” laws.
