thank you for good information,

There's a wealth of information on this site and it covers everything a person may want to know about unions. I'm glad I was able to see this site and know where to look in the future should I need more information.

This is a very important website. I am a Union worker but an American First and the idea of open/non-private voting is repugnant to me. It flies in the face of American tradition where your vote is and should be CONFIDENTIAL. Most Union employees feel as I do and they need to know what this is all about. As far as I know, I hope, this sort of thing is not happening in the Union to which I belong. If I find out it is I will protest. All I can say is keep up the good work. I will pass this around to everyone I can. They cannot intimidate me.

Fight For $15

Michigan State Senator Coleman Young II

Attempts to raise the minimum wage in Connecticut to $15 an hour stalled in the State Senate late last month. The tie vote came with very little surprise as the Senate is split evenly between Democrats and Republicans.

In Michigan, the minimum wage was bumped to $8.90 this year and is set for a steady increase to $9.25 next year, with continued increases through 2018. This is all outlined in the Workforce Opportunity Wage Act of 2014. For one senator though, this bill does not do enough.  Senator Coleman Young II introduced a bill to increase the minimum wage to $15 an hour starting January 1 of next year. This would be a jump of more than 68%.

In Arizona, a push to overturn the law, which will raise Arizona’s minimum wage to $12 an hour by 2020 was rejected in the State Supreme Court. The scheduled increases will stand.
