Every year in some home around some holiday in the world, a great loss is felt. It is not known why bereavement happens so often around the holidays, but it does. Most people realize they have to pick up and keep on going to get through the day, and face the pain at night until life is bearable once again.

Michigan, the birthplace of the United Auto Workers, has now joined Indiana as the first states in the Rust Belt to embrace right-to-work. Both passed their laws this year. The other 22 members of the club are in the South and Mountain West, so the spread of Right to work to the heart of the Upper Midwest is huge news indeed on the labor front.
