Another home-based day care owner forced into a union has been highlighted by the media.

 The Mackinac Center Legal Foundation filed a lawsuit in mid-September on behalf of two other day care operators who faced the same fate after the Michigan Department of Human Services and Mott Community College formed a "shell corporation" for the purpose of siphoning union dues from state child care subsidy checks meant to help low-income families. Some 40,000 home-based day care providers are affected, with about $3.7 million being redirected to the UAW and AFSCME.
