Police in riot gear confront thousands as legislation seen as blow to collective bargaining power, middle class passes. Republican Gov. Rick Snyder signed into law contentious "right-to-work" legislation on Tuesday after tear-gas wielding police and over ten thousand people protesting the attack on labor converged at the state Capitol and vowed that the day's action was just the beginning. Snyder's signature makes the state the 24th to have a law dubbed by critics as "right-to-work for less." "Unions built the middle class of America," he said. "This is a national attack. These folks want to shift more and more of the wealth to a smaller and smaller group of people."
