Gov. Jennifer Granholm's office and the Department of Human Services appear to be at odds over the classification of some 40,000 small-business owners who were forced into a union.

A spokeswoman for Granholm told the Washington Examiner that, "We do regard home-based childcare workers as public employees." DHS has previously insisted that the home-based day care owners are self-employed.

A new investigative video by Communications Specialist Kathy Hoekstra examines Gov. Granholm's role in forcing the thousands of small-business owners into a union, which in turn gets millions of dollars in "dues" that are extracted from subsidy checks day care providers receive on behalf of low-income parents who seek child care while working or attending school.
