LANSING, Mich. – A small business advocate is supporting the right-to-work bill, and have been looking for this for a while.

The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), a large advocate for Michigan’s small business owners says the right-to-work bill will let employees decide whether they was to join a union, which would encourage the expansion of small businesses within the state.

“Small business owners have waited years for this reform and they are geared up for the fight,” said Charlie Owens, State Director of NFIB.

According to the NFIB, The right-to-work law would help the economic situation of small business owners throughout Michigan. “The current law doesn’t give them a choice and it forces private small businesses to act as dues collectors for the unions that often work against their economic interest,” said Owens.
