Right to Work (for Less) Introduced in Senate

According to MIRS, Senate Bill 729 would have this misleading law ‘only apply to schools that have the Michigan Education Association (MEA) as the bargaining unit.’ That raises some simple questions.

“What does this have to do with helping students? With creating jobs? With helping our economy recover?

This has everything to do with destroying MEA for supporting recall efforts against House Education Chair Paul Scott (R) Grand Blanc.  The Republicans are furious that MEA got involved by donating money to the Paul Scott recall group.  Why?  Because Paul Scott is anti-education, anti-union, and proves it day in and day out by introducing legislation that hurts public education in Michigan.

Get your cell phones out, call Sen Howard Walker and tell him NO on SB 779!

There is no scientific evidence showing "Right to Work" (for Less) creates jobs, raises wages, or improves education anywhere.  In fact 7 out of 10 states with the worst economic conditions are Right to Work States! 
The fact this bill is aimed only at teachers covered by MEA contracts shows how mean-spirited Senate majority leader Randy Richardville (sponsor of the bill) and his Republican cronies are.

Call NOW!  do not allow this bill to make it out of the Senate!!
