Today in Labor History

Dec. 11, 2012
Michigan becomes the 24th state to adopt right-to-work legislation. The Republican-dominated state Senate introduced two measures—one covering private workers, the other covering public workers—by surprise five days earlier and immediately voted their passage; the Republican House approved them five days later(the fastest it legally could) and the Republican governor immediately signed both bills.

The Last Big Corporate Tax Cut Didn't Create Jobs
Posted On: Oct 19, 2011

Oct. 19, 2011 | If you listen to anti-worker politicians on the right, you'd think the answer to the nation's ills lies in tax cuts…Corporate tax cuts are often hailed as the solution to American's jobs crisis. But a report issued this week by the U.S. Senate gives lie to that logic with its stark findings that a notable recent effort to create jobs through corporate tax cuts created a multibillion-dollar corporate windfall that did not trickle own to America's workers, and did not create new jobs. (We knew that!) Full story with link to the report is here.
