Labor’s Sore Losers

Posted by on Dec 13, 2012 at 7:34 am

Sometimes the pro-union left just needs to take a chill pill and accept defeat; Tuesday, after Michigan passed its right-to-work laws, was one of those times.

Sure, the law — which ban mandatory union fees — deal a blow to labor in the heart of a traditional bastion: the industrial Midwest.

But the bills were passed by duly elected lawmakers and signed by a democratically empowered governor, Rick Snyder.

So is it too much to expect the unions to accept that outcome civilly? Nonviolently?

Apparently.

“There will be blood — there will be repercussions,” vowed state Democratic Rep. Douglas Geiss, as a vote on the bills neared.

He wasn’t kidding: Outside, thousands of pro-union demonstrators raged — and state troopers in riot gear were called in.

Two tents belonging to supporters of the legislation were vandalized. Fox News contributor Steven Crowder was roughed up.

Full story.

    Our wonderful red state is doing fine since passing RTW last year. New companies are flocking here knowing no union parasites can get their hands in the pie.
