Of course, to say that unions have quite the stranglehold in Michigan would be a gross understatement.
Still, if you think it is ok that the union extorts $778 out of your hide every year–demanding your credit card information for automatic payment–just so you can keep your job, then you have worse things wrong with you than your support of unions.
Yes, I am a State employee in Kentucky. I am “non-merit”. I belong to no union. I am not part of a public pension system. I can be fired for any–or no–reason.
I’m ok with that. It’s about free markets.
