In Online Townhall, Mich. Gov. Snyder(R)Opposes Right To WORK for Less LAW ?...

Following the State of the State address last week, Michigan’s Gov. Rick Snyder(R) held an online town hall meeting. Participating on Twitter using the hash tag #Ask Gov Snyder, union workers, the Michigan State AFL-CIO and progressive allies kept the questions coming – on jobs, needed infrastructure investments and education.

Many of the #Ask Gov Snyder tweets reflected priorities outlined in the Michigan 2012 Jobs Plan, introduced by Michigan State AFL-CIO President Karla Swift. The Jobs Plan has the support of a broad coalition of affiliate unions of the Michigan AFL-CIO and allies, including the Michigan League for Human Services, Progress Michigan and We Are the People. Many of the same organizations – and individual union members – joined in the Twitter Town Hall. The diverse voices asking tough questions were noted by Michigan Public Radio. The Town Hall was also a great opportunity to educate the community on “right to work” for less. When Snyder answered a question by opposing “right to work,” workers and community groups spread the news far and wide. With extremist politicians in Michigan, as well as Indiana, New Hampshire and across the country pushing so-called “right to work,” educating the public about these unnecessary and divisive anti-worker laws couldn’t be more timely. Check out some of the #Ask Gov Snyder Tweets … and look for opportunities to #AskYourElectedOfficials about the issues that matter.
