A few weeks ago we talked about the unions forcing membership on day care providers giving the reason that they were being paid for by some government funding so had to be under the rules and regulations of the federal government.
The Mackinac Center filed suit which ended up being dismissed. I believe they are pursuing other possible methods of working this out, but this post is not yet ready.
The reason we are bring it up again is that John Stossel, who is now a Fox Finance contributor gave a short synopsis of the story this afternoon. He interviewed three women who own day care centers, have at most one other employee and whose businesses are in their private homes.
When they receive checks from government agencies the union dues are subtracted before they receive them. There are approximately 40,000 such businesses which are paying dues to the tune of $3.7 million!
This is more than a scam--this is robbery. We'll keep you posted if there are any further developments.
And did you hear that the Governor's budget as presented is over $2 billion more than the current year's? Arrrrgh!
Easy does it, don't want our blood pressure to go sky high--
