WEYI-TV25 in Saginaw and WPBN-TV7&4 in Traverse City are reporting that the Michigan Legislature is considering protecting Michigan’s labor force under a right-to-work law.

Paul Kersey, labor policy director, told the stations that not having a right-to-work law has cost Michigan jobs and dissuaded businesses from locating in Michigan. A right-to-work law also would have prevented the forced unionization of home-based day care owners, which the Mackinac Center Legal Foundation is suing the Department of Human Services over.
