An editorial in today’s Detroit News calls for an end to the forced unionization of private-sector employees who receive money for performing state-subsidized services, a cause the Mackinac Center has championed for nearly two years.

More needs to be done, however, as the editorial points out: Some 40,000 home health aides continue to be trapped in an illegal union scheme, much like tens of thousands of home-based day care providers were until recently.

House Bill 4003, introduced in January, would prohibit a person whose private employment compensation comes from a direct or indirect government subsidy from being considered a government employee.
