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.

Right-to-Work Takes Effect in Michigan

Union membership in America is at its lowest since the 1930s. Their members number 14.4 million members nationwide, but that number is shrinking, reducing their political clout.

Tell Your Representative to Support the National Right-to-Work Act

Dear FreedomWorks member, As one of our millions of FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to contact your Representative and urge him or her to co-sponsor H.R. 946, the National Right-to-Work Act.  Introduced by Rep. Steve King (IA-4), this legislation would allow workers the freedom to choose whether they wish to join a union, and would disallow the practice of compulsory union dues.

The Show Must Go On...But Will the Unions Agree?

Five years ago, a labor dispute led to a 19-day walkout on Broadway leaving more than two dozen shows dark. In turn, this led to producers and the city of New York losing millions of dollars in potential revenue. That was in 2007, but another potential strike is looming if a deal is not made by the end of the year. This time, it is the 250 cleaners, porters, elevator operators, and bathroom attendants in Broadway’s theaters who are threatening to strike.

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.

Unions Panic as Right-to-Work Passes in Michigan

Right-to-Work has officially passed in Michigan, and Union protestors have gone off the rails. Screaming “Leave us alone or we’re coming for you,” and pulling down tents with people inside.
