Pennsylvania State Rep. Jim Cox (R-129) has announced that he and several colleagues will hold a news conference 11 a.m., Jan. 22 in which they will unveil a package of legislation known as the Open Workforce Initiative.
This initiative would empower Pennsylvania workers by providing them with more freedom to decide whether or not to join a union, says Cox.

Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder signed his state’s right-to-work bill into law, this evening, Dec. 11. Michigan, the home of the United Auto Workers and the heavily unionized auto industry, becomes the nation’s 24th right-to-work state.
The day was marred by widespread union violence in Lansing, Michigan’s capital. Unions bussed protesters in from several neighboring states, and teachers left work in two school districts to protest to such an extent that those districts shut down, reports Bryan Preston of PJMedia.Com
Union boss Jimmy Hoffa Jr. has promised “civil war” and the state Democratic Party directly threatened “blood,” says Preston. Americans for Prosperity’s on-site tent was torn down by unknown union operatives, with people including children inside. Conservative comedian and PJ alum Steven Crowder was assaulted by a man who appeared to be a member of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers union. A reward has been building on Twitter for the assailant’s arrest and prosecution. The man was at the protest representing the IBEW, opening the possibility of Crowder suing the union itself. On Twitter, Crowder says that the man also threatened to kill him.
Meanwhile, Pennsylvania, despite a Republican governor and Republican-controlled legislature, remains backward, oppressed and uncompetitive. Is it simple fear Gov. Corbett? If so step down and let a Republican with backbone take your place.
Michigan Gov. Signs Right To Work Law
Indiana 23rd Right To Work State — Gov. Mitch Daniels this afternoon, Feb 1, signed legislation making Indiana the nation’s 23rd “right to work” state.
“Right to work” laws prohibit agreements between and employers that make membership, payment of union dues, or fees a condition of employment.
Pennsylvania is a notably not “right to work” state as are just about all in the declining Northeast and Midwest.
Excepting Indiana now, of course.

I’d Almost Be Willing To Get A Job To Strike — The popularly elected majority in the Wisconsin Senate finally got sick of the game-playing by Democrats and their public union masters, and approved 18-1, March 9, a bill stripping away collective bargaining rights for most public workers.
Needless to say the left has become quite upset and for us that means we get the image of the week.
This was taken from DemocratUnderground.Com on March 9 shortly before midnight and ProudDad perfectly illustrates the mindset of the liberal/progressive/giveme giveme voter.
