Senior Attorney Derk Wilcox participated in a live chat on MLive from noon to 1 p.m. Friday on Proposal 4. Wilcox participated in a similar even hosted by the Detroit Free Press last week.

Wilcox authored the Center’s recent policy brief on Proposal 4, which would enshrine in the state constitution a scheme to force home-based caregivers into a government union. This ploy so far has allowed the SEIU to skim more than $32 million in “dues” from family members who provide care for their loved ones.

Wilcox discussed the ballot proposal with Dohn Hoyle, executive director of Arc Michigan. Hoyle in the Free Press recently called Rob Haynes, a retired Detroit police officer who along with his wife cares for their two developmentally disabled children, “an idiot” for objecting to the stealth unionization.
