Well, you're not going to have much choice if the Michigan Department of Human Services gets their way. They have their foot in the door as we speak and it's going to be downhill from here unless the new Mackinac Center Legal Foundation can stop them.
How can that be??? Easy. The DHS says that anyone who spends public assistance money at a Day Care Center puts the owners and employees in the position of benefiting from government funding. Therefore the 40,000 day care providers across the state have "recently been unionized, many of them against their will..." They consider these people government employees being paid by government funds and therefore subject to forced unionization.
So let's go through the logical steps: Doctors? Lawyers? Landlords? Churches? Drug stores? Consignment shops? Goodwill, Salvation Army, St. Vincent dePaul? Automobile salesmen or even a deal between individuals? Folks who have garage sales? Pretty soon everyone in the whole darn state!!! Fill in the blank_______.
The Mackinac Center is starting a Legal Foundation in order to take legal action to try to stop this. At the present time there is an anonymous donor who will give fifty cents for each dollar contributed to get this program off the ground. I'm asking my kids to make a contribution instead of buying me a Christmas gift. The address if you can help out is: Mackinac Center for Public Policy, Attn. Joe Lehman, 140 W. Main St., P. O. Box 568, Midland, MI 48640-9943.
Have a great Sunday--
