State Senator John Gleason:

"As a man of Catholic faith, I firmly believe that the dignity of work is tied to the preservation of the rights of workers. Fair wages and safe work places are central to the equal treatment of all human beings. Men and women have died to protect these rights that Governor Snyder is going to get rid of with a stroke of the pen and not a single committee hearing."

State Representative Joe Graves:

"With Freedom to Work, Michigan workers will now be able to seek a career without being forced to join a union or have dues deducted from their paychecks. Unions will still have rights, but now workers will have rights too. Fairness is allowing workers to decided what's best for themselves and their families and I'm proud that today we gave workers that right by passing Freedom to Work."
