A scheme by the Service Employees International Union to enshrine its dues skim from home-based caregivers in the Michigan Constitution has caught the attention of statewide media.

Patrick Wright, director of the Mackinac Center Legal Foundation, told WOOD Radio in Grand Rapids that the ballot proposal does nothing to help the state’s most vulnerable residents find home care. MLive pointed out that the Center has explicitly shown that many of the people suffering from the forced unionization are simply family members caring for loved ones. The Detroit Free Press reported that the Center has exposed how the SEIU has skimmed more than $30 million in “dues” from the Medicaid checks meant to help developmentally disabled adults. MLive reported that the Center has "long criticized" the stealth unionization.
