Governor Rick Snyder says the issue of requiring financial support of a union as a condition of employment is now "on the agenda" for consideration. Tracking the bill closely: General Motors (GM), Ford (F), and Chrysler (FIATY.PK).  [View news story]
    Unions have long used their political influence to have laws pasted whereby everyone working for a union-shop has to support the union by paying dues. The power of law is the power of physical force; government has the courts and the guns to back the courts' decisions. Any organization, be it union or otherwise, seeking laws to benefit them at an individuals expense is un-American. The power of a wage offer from a company or individual is a value of dollars and benefits in exchange for your service (value) as an employee; there is no force in this voluntary recognition and exchange of value for a value. It is about time the American public, including unions and their members, realize that government-backed initiation of force is ugly and truly un-American. A right to refuse a union as well as the right to turn down an offer of employment is an individual right and to violate this right in principle is a egregious violation of all individual rights.
