U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow issued the following statement today regarding the passage of right-to-work legislation in the Michigan Legislature:
"As Michigan's economy is recovering, we need to work together to build a stronger economy, not tear our state apart with divisive political issues. By passing this so-called "right to work' bill, Michigan is taking a major step backward. It will mean lower wages and fewer benefits for every worker, and a poisoned political environment. That is why I have repeatedly urged Governor Snyder to veto these bills. If they become law, it will be a sad day in Michigan's long history of labor and business working together to create jobs and build a strong middle class."
