    No unions were deprived of any of their rights in Michigan; on the contrary, workers’ saw their rights, long lost to the unions, restored.

    “forced them to spend staggering sums”

    “Unions already had spent $22 million this year in the state on a failed effort to enshrine collective bargaining rights in the Michigan Constitution.”

    “Unions spent $24 million to overturn an anti-union measure in Ohio”

    “an effort to defeat a California ballot measure that would curb dues-collection for political spending cost unions more than they spent in Michigan, Ohio and Wisconsin combined.”

    “unions helped elect Democratic governors,”

    “Unions are gearing up for another expensive fight in the state.”

    “AFL-CIO's Podhorzer said unions also plan to target Ohio Gov. John Kasich,”

    “unions also are circling Corbett in Pennsylvania and Florida Gov. Rick Scott.”

    Maybe if the unions were more concerned about spending their money on their members rather than on the unions and being a dem piggy bank, they would not see their numbers dropping so dramatically and their relevance return
