Wait ... huh? Oh, right, Jon Stewart is making the point that Michigan's newly signed right-to-work law, on the surface, sounds like a good thing for workers, just like gentlemen's clubs do for gentlemen and The Learning Channel does for learning. But, really, those things aren't what they seem. The bigger point he's making is that Governor Rick Snyder's decision to make Michigan the country's 24th right-to-work state actually gives corporations the right to work around unions ... and that we should add Snyder to the list of politicians flipping the script on us, as the governor was promising earlier this year that he didn't want to touch such a divisive issue ... and that pro-union protesters need better chants.
