Tag: Protect Union Boss Jobs Initiative
By Corinthian Scales, Section News
The union-backed proposal known as "Protect Our Jobs" has mostly been sold as enshrining collective bargaining privileges into the Michigan Constitution and fending off a right-to-work law that could be passed at some point in the future.
If this goes through, it'd be wise to bail from Michigan before the rubes figure out what this is going to do to folks taxes.

The Bridge thing wasn't the only thing allowed to stand.
Lansing, MI, September 5, 2012-- Citizens Protecting Michigan's Constitution today expressed disappointment with the Supreme Court ruling to allow the unions so-called collective bargaining ballot proposal to go forward but pledged to continue the fight to protect Michigan's Constitution and the state's economic future against attempts by union bosses and outside special interests to hijack Michigan's constitution.
"With the court decision behind us, the campaign to fully inform voters can begin," said Stu Sandler, Consultant for Citizens Protecting Michigan's Constitution. "Michigan's citizens have a clear choice this November between protecting our state's constitution and economic future or returning to the failed policies of the past by handing control of the state and perhaps billions of state and local tax dollars to a handful of union bosses.
"While we are disappointed with the Court's decision to allow a purposefully misleading and job killing proposal on the ballot, we are fully prepared and will work each and every day between now and November 6th to inform Michigan families about the real purpose behind this deceptive proposal. If adopted this proposal would have a devastating effect on our state, but we are confident that on Election Day voters will tell Big Labor "No! Hands off our constitution!"
