Michigan comes to its senses

Nice to see Michigan finally came to its senses. Big businesses are what bring jobs to a state. Unions have done everything in their power to drive off big business, and as a result, Detroit is nearly bankrupt, and the unions have done absolutely nothing to help the situation.

We are no longer living in the 1930s; unions are obsolete today. All they do is get in the way of a free market and make things worse. If you have an issue today, businesses usually have an “open door” policy to resolve it, and “collective bargaining” is demanding a higher wage than a free market says you should have. People should always have the option of not joining a union without fear of harassment.

Good job, Michigan.
