Today, Congressman John D. Dingell (D-MI15) expressed great outrage at Michigan Governor Rick Snyder's signature of right-to-work legislation.

"Governor Snyder has kowtowed to ultra-right-wing partisan interests and stuck it to working men and women all over Michigan," said Dingell. "By signing this bill into law, the governor has turned his back on decades of peaceful cooperation between labor, state government, and business. I recall a time when Republican governors like Romney and Milliken helped advance the cause of the middle class. Sadly, Governor Snyder does not follow in their footsteps and has loosed upon Michigan bitterness and ill will that will poison labor-management relations at a time when the State can least afford it."
