WEYI-TV25 in Saginaw and WPBN-TV7&4 in Traverse City are reporting that the Michigan Legislature is considering protecting Michigan’s labor force under a right-to-work law.
Paul Kersey, labor policy director, told the stations that not having a right-to-work law has cost Michigan jobs and dissuaded businesses from locating in Michigan.
