Gov. Rick Snyder signed Senate Bill 1018 into law more than two weeks ago, ending the illegal unionization of some 60,000 home health care aides. Michigan Capitol Confidential reports today, however, that “dues” are still being skimmed from their paychecks. CapCon’s skim-tracker shows that the SEIU has siphoned nearly $30 million from Michigan’s most vulnerable residents since the scheme was put in place six years ago.
CapCon also reports today that public-sector employees continue to make more than the private-sector workers who pay them.
