Re: 2011 House Bill 4003 (Ban “stealth" unionization of independent contractors )  by savorstste59 on February 2, 2012 

 Again we see our so-called conservative republican leaders falling into a liberal   pattern of raising taxes to support a never ending revenue hodgepodge. This mindset continues to drain monies away from earners and place it in the hands of incompetent lazy politicians who remain convinced that they know best. Until we remove all these tax and spend individuals we will never get to keep what we earn.The Senate needs a walk to the wood shed by the angry voters of Michigan. Regarding HB 4003 the message is clear union money stolen from home healthcare workers does not seem to be a priority to most in Lansing, remember who these chair warmers are come election time. For Rick Snyder sitting on the fence regarding RTW is the cowards way out and sends a clear message to all of us that a nerd can be bullied.

I want the money being taken by SEIU to be used for my son instead. That money is better served by providing an extra meal for him, not into the hands of the SEIU. Government at both state and federal levels have given unions way too much power to allow them to deduct wages from paychecks without permission from the wage earners. Unionization should not be required for employment in any situation. I'm not saying get rid of unions altogether, but to allow people to choose for themselves whether or not they wish to be in a union. And if they choose not to, they should not be discriminated against or treated differently in the workplace.

 This bill should pass. This was and outright payback to Grandholms cronnie's ,the UAW and SIEU . It forced small business owners into a union which forced union dues. Not to mention no representation. This was right out of "Atlas Shrugged"
