Right To Work and The Rust Belt

Right to Work is sweeping the rust belt! Workers are free to choose whether or not they would like to join a union in Michigan and Indiana, in the heart of the rust belt, as well as in its further reaches such as Iowa.

Michigan Education Reform Includes Stopping Common Core

When we think of states to look to in terms of free markets and the responsibility of personal choices, most of us wouldn’t think of Michigan first, or second. Let’s face it, Michigan wouldn’t crack most peoples’ top ten. However, Michigan is making progress; away from so-called progressivism. Michigan’s shiny new status as a right-to-work state is one of the biggest steps towards this new, freer Michigan.  It is moving away from its union-tied nanny-state history. What should not be overlooked, though, is what Michigan is doing in education.

Motor City Blues Part I: The Myth of Union Detroit

In recent weeks the once proud city of Detroit has been subject to a barrage of embarrassing media reports. The state takeover of the city’s finances and Kwame “The Hip-Hop Mayor” Kilpatrick’s prison sentence have played out on the national stage, bringing bad PR to a city desperately trying to improve its brand. In reality the city has been embarrassing itself for quite some time. This three part blog series seeks to lay out the history behind the epic failure that is Detroit.

The Battle Against Common Core Standards

Quietly and almost without notice, an initiative which significantly erodes local and state control of school curriculum has passed in 46 states. The Common Core Standards Initiative sets Math and English curriculum in every participating state at the same level. In adopting this “common core” states are relinquishing their right to compose their own education requirements.

Labor Relations in the United States and the National Right to Work Act

Earlier this year, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) introduced the ‘National Right-to-Work Act,’ a bill which would amend the National Labor Relations Act (also known as the Wagner Act) with the goal of preserving and protecting “the free choice of individual employees to form, join, or assist labor organizations, or to refrain from such activities.” According to the National Labor Relations Board, “Congress enacted the National Labor Relations Act…in 1

Lansing the Boil

My family has deep roots in Michigan, from the frigid locks of Sault Ste. Marie to the college-town ambience of Kalamazoo. But ultimately, my parents left Michigan and eventually the Midwest in search of jobs. Jobs found in the “right-to-work” state of Arizona.

Last week, after Right-to-Work passed in Michigan, many were celebrating workplace freedom in the historic union stronghold. Some, however, were less than thrilled. Take, for example, Michael Moore, hypocrite extraordinaire who took to Twitter to express his displeasure.

Michigan, a historic union stronghold and birthplace of United Auto Workers, has now taken a leap forward in workplace freedom. Last night, Michigan lawmakers passed right-to-work legislation, giving workers in the state the choice to join a union, or not, as they saw best.
