2010 Senate Bill 1178: Ban “stealth" unionization of welfare or Medicaid service employees
  1. Introduced by Sen. Mark Jansen (R) on February 25, 2010, to establish that a person whose private employment compensation comes from a direct or indirect government subsidy is not considered a government employee, and so is not subject be being inducted into a government employee union. This would apply to the home day care providers who are the subject of a Mackinac Center lawsuit, and the Medicaid-recipient home personal care services providers subject to a similar scheme for which Senate Bill 731 would give statutory authorization.
    • Referred to the Senate Families and Human Services Committee on February 25, 2010.
