Patrick J. Wright, director of the Mackinac Center Legal Foundation, was an in-studio guest on “The Frank Beckman Show” on WJR AM760 this morning, discussing the forced unionization of home-based caregivers by the SEIU.

Wright earlier today filed paperwork at the Michigan Employment Relations Commission asking the administrative panel to overturn its 2005 decision that forced tens of thousands of people into a union, most of whom care for disabled family members who receive a Medicaid stipend.

Wright also discussed the suit on "The Tony Conley Show" on WILS AM1320 in Lansing, and Gongwer covered the filing.

Wright told Michigan Public Radio that home-based caregivers are "at home taking care of loved ones, and ending up paying union dues because of it, and we don't think that's proper."
