Obama Livid Over SEIU's Michigan Smackdown

Legalized political kickbacks are still siphoned from elderly, disabled in other states
It's official: Michigan's home health care "dues skim" has ended.

For the first time since 2006, the Service Employees International Union is not deducting money from the Medicaid checks of the state's 59,000 home-based caregivers.

James Haveman, director of the Michigan Department of Community Health, confirmed that the money no longer is being taken from the checks.

"The Department of Community Health successfully ended the contract with the SEIU and, in turn, stopped the dues from being taken out of Michigan home health care worker paychecks," Haveman said. "Making this happen was a priority for me and our administration and I’m glad to see that with this next round of paychecks this has become a reality."

The SEIU, however, took $34,416,335.21 from the elderly and disabled in Michigan, according to the Michigan Capitol Confidential skim tracker, an online scrolling ticker that was tracking the money the SEIU took.

Obama livid over Badger State AFSCME smackdown
More than two years after Scott Walker’s showdown with organized labor in Wisconsin, the official numbers for the state’s public sector union membership are in — and they are down. Way down.

According a Labor Department filing made last week, membership at Wisconsin’s American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Council 40 — one of AFSCME’s four branches in the state — has gone from the 31,730 it reported in 2011, to 29,777 in 2012, to just 20,488 now. That’s a drop of more than 11,000 — about a third — in just two years. The council represents city and county employees outside of Milwaukee County and child care workers across Wisconsin.

Labor Department filings also show that Wisconsin’s AFSCME Council 48, which represents city and county workers in Milwaukee County, went from 9,043 members in 2011, to 6,046 in 2012, to just 3,498 now.

These numbers come from the locals’ LM-2 filings, annual reports they must make to Labor Department. They can be found here.
