Feedback at 5:00- "Right-to-Work"

Posted: Updated:

So-called "Right to Work" legislation will end up in the hands of Michigan lawmakers in the final days of 2012.

Governor Snyder says he will push for passage in the next few days, and that bills will be introduced today.

It gives workers the option to join a union or not.

The legislation will cover both private and public sector workers, but an exception will be granted for police and firefighters.

Supporters say right-to-work isn't retaliation against workers, and it's about giving them a choice.

Union activists and other critics are in Lansing today, rallying at the capitol building.

For tonight's "Feedback at 5:00," do you think Michigan should change to a right-to-work state, or stay the same?
