Michigan’s state legislature will vote today on so-called “right-to-work” laws aimed at decimating the state’s public and private unions, and much like Wisconsin workers last winter, thousands of Michigan workers have gathered inside and outside the state capitol in Lansing to protest the legislation. Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder (R) announced his support for the “right-to-work” laws last week after promising that it wasn’t on his agenda, and both the state House and state Senate immediately passed similar pieces of legislation.
The final pieces of legislation are expected to pass today, sparking a march through downtown Lansing and massive protests outside the capitol:
