In their infinite wisdom and their continuing efforts to "reform" "education" (read: make teachers do more and harder work for less money; the sorry ingrates should be grateful they have a job), the Michigan Senate introduced a bill to make Michigan a "Right to Work" state (SB 729, sponsored by Meekhof (R-West Olive).

No, wait.  The bill would only apply to Michigan's education unions.

No, wait.  It would only apply to education unions with membership greater than 50,000.

So it would only apply to the MEA, but they can't say that, because passing a law attacking one particular institution is unconstitutional.  Or something.

The sponsor argues that it will create jobs are something, like in Mississippi.

In unrelated news. the unemployment rate in Mississippi is 10.2%.
