BREAKING: Michigan House Passes Private Sector ‘Right to Work’ for Less

The Michigan House just passed the second “right to work” for less bill by a 58-52 vote. The latest action was on legislation applying to private-sector workers. It followed earlier action on a measure applying to public employees.

But the Detroit Free Press reports that in a parliamentary maneuver, the House Republicans asked for a reconsideration of the bill to keep Democrats from asking for the same thing, which would have delayed final passage until Wednesday. Technically, the Republicans could remove that request later today and the bills will automatically head to Gov. Rick Snyder.

Huge crowds inside and outside the state Capitol in Lansing protested Snyder's and the Republicans’ undemocratic steamrolling for the "right to work" through the legislature without any hearings or public debate.
