There are a number of bizarre schemes unions have used to coerce dues out of public funds. For a long time, I thought  where the United Auto Workers and the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees held a sham vote-by-mail organizing election that “unionized” Michigan’s home daycare providers largely against their will. This allowed them to collect union dues from state chid care subsidies.

However, it turns out there are even worse union scams happening in Michigan right now. Joel Gehrke at the Washington Examiner reports:

If you’re a parent who accepts Medicaid payments from the State of Michigan to help support your mentally-disabled adult children,  you qualify as a state employee for the purposes of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU). They can now claim and receive a portion of your Medicaid in the form of union dues.
