Patrick Wright, director of the Mackinac Center Legal Foundation, was a guest on “The Michael Cohen Show” Wednesday on WILS-AM1320 in Lansing.

Wright discussed the case of Melinda Day, a graduate student research assistant at the University of Michigan who is fighting against illegal unionization. Wright filed a motion with the Michigan Employment Relations Commission on Day’s behalf, detailing that MERC previously ruled such graduate student research assistants are primarily students, not public employees, and therefore cannot be made part of a public-sector union.
