$5,959,500,000

Do I have your attention?

Five billion, nine hundred fifty-nine million, five hundred thousand dollars.

Per year.

That's what you get when you multiply the number of people currently employed in Michigan (3,973,000), by the amount of money lost in reduced wages ($1,500) per person, in one year, on average, after a state adopts "right to work" laws.

Six billion dollars, transferred out of middle- and lower-class paychecks, and transferred into profits.

Michigan, that's no way to build and sustain a middle class.

It's plutocracy.

Worse - it's kleptocracy - government by those who seek chiefly status and personal gain at the expense of the governed.
