Gary Glenn Discusses Michigan's Right-to-Work Law on the Mike Huckabee Show

Gary Glenn with son, Hunter, and Governor Mike Huckabee
Click here to listen to Gov. Mike Huckabee's December 13th interview with Gary Glenn, president of the American Family Association of Michigan, regarding Michigan's historic new Right to Work law.

The law prohibits compulsory union dues, protecting Christian and other employees from being forced -- under threat of being fired -- to contribute money to union officials who promote abortion on demand, so-called homosexual "marriage," and other causes that the individual employee opposes as a matter of religious conviction or conscience.

Gary was a founding member of the Michigan Freedom to Work Coalition that in June 2011 announced its push for passage of this new civil rights law prohibiting job discrimination on the basis of union affiliation or support.  From 1980-86, Gary was executive director of the Idaho Freedom to Work Committee and led that state's successful drive to enact the same law.

Union officials are expected to put an initiative on Michigan's November 2014 election ballot to try to repeal the new law and restore their ability to discriminate against and fire individuals who as a matter of conviction and conscience refuse to support Big Labor's partisan political agenda.

The Fall of the House of Labor

By Patrick J. Buchanan

In 1958, Senate Minority Leader William Knowland, his eye on the 1960 GOP nomination coveted by fellow Californian Richard Nixon, went home and declared for governor.

Knowland’s plan: Ride to victory on the back of Proposition 18, the initiative to make right-to-work the law in the Golden Land. Prop. 18 was rejected 2 to 1. Knowland’s career was over, and the Republicans were decimated nationally for backing right-to-work.

Badly burned, the party for years ran away from the issue.
