This past week, Michigan became the 24th state to pass a Right to Work (for Less) bill.
Wherever did the legislation originate?
The Center for Media and Democracy knows: it was copied almost verbatim from ALEC model legislation to quash unions.
ALEC, if you did not know, is a secretive organization with 2,000 or so members who are state legislators. It is funded by major corporations. It writes model laws that its members can introduce in their state.
It is, not surprisingly, anti-worker and pro-corporation.
it has model legislation for vouchers, charters, online charters, and getting rid of teacher tenure and certification. It wants to privatize public education, bust unions, and turn everything over to the vagaries of the free market.
