Michigan is the new Wisconsin:
Gov. Rick Snyder said at a news conference today the Legislature will proceed with right-to-work legislation for public and private employees and he will sign the bills when the land on his desk.
Only police and firefighters will be excluded, he said.
The legislation is about “freedom to choose,” and the issue “was on the table whether I wanted it to be there or not,” he said.
A friend from Michigan says this is an about-face for Snyder, who’s tried to be perceived as a moderate until now.
Update. Some I’ve spoken to are speculating that it could be fear of a primary challenge from the right that motivated Snyder to do this.
Update. At least I know I’m free:
Police have begun pepper spraying and removing protesters from the Capitol!
