Michigan Republican State Rep Tries To Exempt Husband From Right-To-Work Law

Posted by | December 13, 2012 14:58 | Filed under: Top Stories

Lisa Posthumus Lyons was a big supporter of her state’s right-to-work law; she just doesn’t want to have to live by it.

[Lyons proclaimed],“this is the day that Michigan freed its workers.” But she also proposed to add corrections officers to the list of public employees – including police and fire – not covered by the right-to-work law.

The amendment was gaveled down and did not come up for a vote.

“When we talk about the brave women in police and fire we need to remember people in corrections,” said Lyons, whose husband, Brad Lyons, is a corrections officer. “These guys work in conditions that we can’t even begin to imagine.

“It’s not financial. It’s philosophy. I am saying we need to treat our corrections officers that way we treat our police men and women and firefighter men and women.”
