from you, so I have a way to beat you senseless?
The poor and disadvantaged have been paying into a merciless system of political payback set up by Jennifer Granholm, and advanced through a series of tricks. Authorities created under legislation passed during her tenure became the basis for the presumed voting in of a union for unsuspecting home health care workers and the money vacuum was turned on high. And it apparently continues.
Despite a bill being signed in to law by Gov. Rick Snyder that ends the "home health care dues skim," money is still being collected from worker paychecks.
Isn't that stealing?
It most certainly was to begin with, but even the guy with the pen looked the other way while Department of Community Health Olga Dazzo allowed the scam to continue. Maura Corrigan at least got it right away with regard to the day care workers. The theft from those who had no idea how the unions were allowed to reach into their pockets and literally take the bread from their mouths continues to this day apparently. Even with the recent legislation designed to stop it:
"The "skim" has been going on for about six years and the SEIU has taken in more than $29 million. Since the bill was signed by Gov. Snyder on April 10, more than $215,000 has been taken from paychecks.Thats a pretty big hammer.
Its pretty sickle too.
