Right wing radio on unions:

Earlier this year (and the year before that) the right wing radio campaign was against public employee unions.  The gripe was that those people were getting a lot "more" than they otherwise deserved to get because they could use union power to cut a favorable deal.

But today, in the wake of Michigan's Right To Work law, the argument is that unions are bad for the people in the unions, and that they shouldn't have to pay $200 in dues (or whatever amount), that the unions don't deliver the goods, etc.

On the one hand, unions empower workers to get too much. On the other hand, being in a union means getting screwed.
