Won't let me insert an iframe...
But interesting graph of unemployment rates from a few states compared side by side...

18.1% in Detroit... might be skewing the data a bit...
What the Hell is that?
As a conservative in support of right-to-work...you couldn't pay me to stand near those union savages and hold pro-right to work signs. Americans for Prosperity set up a tent that just got barreled over by the union supporters and PJTV's Steven Crowder was attacked.
Glad to see it likely get pushed through. Michigan's first good decision in quite some time.
If you don't know what right-to-work means then here ya go.....
Right-to-work state - you can join a union and pay dues if you choose to do so
Non-right-to-work state - you may be required to join a union and pay dues as a term of employment
Michigan State Police finally had to start pepper spraying the unruly crowds. The pro-union people are vowing not to leave the capital building.
Oh, gee...Obama siding with the thugs...that's predictable.
This is what America voted for. Thugs. Congrats, dopes.
Crowder took a pretty damn good shot...jeez...
When will someone finally do something about those violent Tea Party extremists?
Yup best reason to be pro union from what I see in that video.
Obama president nah!
Cap'n obvious...if this was a tea party person assaulting someone, the Justice Department would be all over this along with every media outlet.
This country is lost and not coming back.
I hope this all ends in civil war. Fuck this country.
...but even if you choose not to do so the union will be required to assist you in any and every way that they would assist a due-paying member at the cost of the other members.
In this way the "right to work" states eliminate every benefit of being a due-paying member.
That's fine, those dummies deserve what they get.
Hoffa said on tv there will be blood before it's all over, and jay carney refuses to condemn union violence. Surprise!
Democrats: freedom to choose on abortion, but not union membership.
Sending a FOX "News" correspondent into a union rally is like sending a sexy reporter to cover Mideast uprising. They're both gonna get rap.ed!
Thus proving what a bunch of savages they are.
You should be forcibly sodomized for this.
This is advocating r@pe and you just took it too far. Some things just aren't funny. This crosses the line.
Q: Why are you so opposed to "right to work?"
A: "It's the free loaders.They can parasiticly suck out all the benefits that union members have worked so hard for."
Oh the liberal irony...
Is there some sort of union membership requirement associated with radio/tv broadcasters?
I got this.
Depends on the station. Most are beholden to SAG/AFTRA. Which is a huge, yet completely limp dicked union...with some of the highest union dues in the nation.
Jeez, AFL/CIO...stupid move sending your dumb Director of Communications broad on Fox News.
Went something like this:
Fox News host: But I don't understand, why wouldn't you want to allow the citizens to have a choice whether they join a union or not?
Dumb AFL/CIO broad: They DO have that choice...they do have a choice...and, and I kno...
Fox News host: But, wait, wait, no they don't have that choice and they've got to pay the union dues...
Dumb AFL/CIO broad: Well what we saw yesterday was the good people of Michigan rise up against this Republican-led state government who are trying to unjustly destroy the worker's rights.
Fox News host: But shouldn't people have the right to choose whether or not they want to be part of a union?
Dumb AFL/CIO broad: They DO have that choice! You don't understand, there is a choice for them.
