Those who want to privatize public services and destroy unions have made some successful incursions into the once union-friendly state. Whether Michiganders can mount an effective resistance remains to be seen.
When Michigan Republicans decided to push through a so-called right-to-work bill in December 2012, schools in three districts were forced to close for a day because so many teachers went to the Capitol to protest. Several dozen protesters demonstrated in the Capitol Rotunda; nine were arrested.

In an effort to press Congress to pass a jobs-creating, long-term Highway Bill, LIUNA has launched a major media campaign including radio ads, billboards, online materials and actions and the “Getting Schooled in Infrastructure” school bus, which began touring the U.S. on June 16. The bus has been crushed and carries a large piece of concrete from a falling bridge. It will be towed to news media briefings in more than 20 locations, starting with Delaware, Pennsylvania and Ohio and continuing to other cities during the summer. The campaign is linked to www.FixOurBridges.org and www.RepairOurRoads.org, where concerned Americans can send a message to Congress. The current Highway Bill authorization expires Oct. 1, meaning the Highway Trust Fund will no longer pass funds to states for road and bridge projects, unless Congress takes action. Even before the expiration, the fund is expected to run dry. Congress has viable options to save the trust fund. Hundreds of thousands of jobs – and the safety of motorists – are at stake. Watch video and see other coverage.
