The governor explained why he supports the legislation in his blog on Dec. 7.
"Michigan is making a comeback thanks to hardworking women and men, business owners, entrepreneurs, students and professionals of all kinds," Snyder wrote. "But for us to succeed, we have to remain competitive. That's why I believe we should make Michigan a freedom-to-work state."
The governor followed with a background on the issue, then concluded with his opinion on why it should be enacted in Michigan.
"Just like Michigan's natural beauty attracts tourists from around the country, our economic conditions attract workers and businesses, too. But if another state can offer a better home — either for a company or a worker — Michigan can lose out, no matter how great our state may be. That's why we must remain competitive," Snyder wrote for his "Reinventing Michigan" blog.
