Today U.S. Congressman Gary Peters denounced Governor Rick Snyder for introducing and attempting to ram so-called "Right to Work" legislation through the lame duck session of the legislature.
"Governor Snyder campaigned on a promise of unity, but instead he's ushering in an era of divisiveness across Michigan by launching an attack against working families," said U.S. Congressman Gary Peters. "By trying to jam this through a lame duck session, Governor Snyder is trying to prevent voters from seeing how he is dividing Michigan instead of working to ensure the future of our state during this fragile recovery. Just like Scott Walker, Governor Snyder's flip flop is clearly a calculated decision to put his own political ambitions ahead of the families he's supposed to be working for. I stand in solidarity with Michigan's working families, and we will never stop fighting against this unprecedented and reckless action by Governor Snyder."
