Michigan becomes first state in decades to repeal 'right-to-work' law
Ryan Payne: ‘Hot’ job market ‘not slowing down’
Kingsview Asset Management Partner Mario Veneroso and Payne Capital Management President Ryan Payne discuss the Federal Reserve’s management of rate hikes, the labor market and provide their stock market outlooks.
Michigan has become the first state in 58 years to repeal a "right-to-work" law.
The law, passed more than decade ago by a Republican-controlled Legislature, had allowed those in unionized workplaces to opt out of paying union dues and fees.
"Today, we are coming together to restore workers’ rights, protect Michiganders on the job and grow Michigan’s middle class," Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer said in a statement after she signed the legislation.
"Unions made Michigan a hub of American business, and an engine of America’s middle class. A strong middle class benefits everybody," President Biden tweeted in response to the news. "Michigan is leading as a great place to be a worker and a great place to do business."
