Voters have a very difficult decision to make now that the Michigan Supreme Court has approved the so-called “Protect Our Jobs” Amendment for the Nov. 6 ballot.

Vernuccio told The Detroit News that POJA could “fundamentally change how Michigan is governed” because it would make unions more powerful than the Legislature.

Vernuccio also discussed the matter on "The Tony Conley Show" on WILS AM1320 in Lansing.
