On Tuesday, I joined more than 17,000 workers; union and non-union in a mass
rally together outside of the State Capitol building as anti-worker legislators answered Governor Rick Snyder's call to divide Michigan by ramming through two so-called "right-to-work" bills which promise to kill jobs, lower wages, crush workers' rights and unravel the middle class.
Snyder misled the people of Michigan by announcing he would sign the bill Wednesday, but waited until all of us gathered outside the capitol returned home before calling a closed last minute press conference and bill signing on Tuesday night.
But I have news for Snyder; we won't be silenced. It's going to take us all coming together to turn this piece of dangerous legislation around. You can sign this pledge to take action in the coming days and months against "right-to-work-for-less" in Michigan.
Earlier this year, Snyder said that so-called "right-to-work" was not a part of his agenda." But with the support of right-wing interests like ALEC and the Koch Brothers, Snyder rushed the bill through in just six days, with no input from Michigan's voters.
Governor Rick Snyder has been bought-and-paid-for by Republican interest groups who seek to destroy the middle class by silencing the voices of working people. But we won't let them. Your pledge of support will help Michigan workers like me in our continued fight to protect workers rights and middle class families in Michigan.
