    Michigan now has a right-to-work state as a neighbor, as Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels signed legislation Wednesday afternoon making his state the 23rd right-to-work state in the nation and the first in the Manufacturing Belt. Under the legislation, unions and companies cannot negotiate contracts that force employees to financially support a union as a condition of employment.

    Gov. Daniels put his signature on the measure shortly after the Indiana state Senate passed it Wednesday morning on a 28-22 vote. A similar measure in 2011 failed when Democratic lawmakers prevented the state House from holding session by leaving the state. Subsequent polling showed that strategy to be very unpopular with the voters. This year, the Democrats could only use delaying tactics and now the legislation has become Indiana law.


    Mitch Daniels seems as popular as ever but the ever so predictable liberals think that this will be the death knell of the Republicans in Indiana because of a repealed law decades ago. Technology and time really do make a difference sometimes.

    Indiana was a "right-to-work" (for slave wages) state once before and it was eventually overturned. I predict this will be as well.

    And we'll see how popular he remains as this goes into effect.

    Yeah because this was such a surprise bill icon_rolleyes.gif Still dreaming in technicolor I see. Must be getting increasingly desperate to cling to the beliefs you do when they are so increasingly unpopular.

    In fact, soon it'll be accurate to say that your extremist liberal views are an anachronism to our times. The world is changing, your views aren't and will be left behind.

    Your view of American politics is about as good as Sarah Palin's view of Russia from her house. icon_lol.gif

    Well let's see how this plays out. I've seen what happens on a smaller scale. It works if the employer offers the same benefits and rights to non-union employees that their unionized counterparts have. When this doesn't happen there's an exodus of non-union employees joining the union.

    "Right to work" is republican doublespeak for "union-busting."

    Freedom is Slavery

    It's a very silly term, and an oxymoron.
