    "a coalition of unions in Michigan call for a general strike?"

    A one-day walk out I think is doable and effective enough to have a wide, news-worthy effect but hurt working people the least.  I think the most effective strikes are those that affect the most people. Transportation, public utilities, big plants, food workers and hotels, and so forth.

    Solidarity!

      Strike. Shut all of MI down. Let Gov Snyder know ahead of time, if he signs it, general strike. If he signs it anyway, continue general strike for every single day the legislature does not roll it back.

      •  Takes a lot of planning and willpower. (0+ / 0-)

        I'd be content with coordinated, strategic shutdowns until they could build to to a statewide action.

        But it sure seems like all of this is fantasy.  I hope I'm wrong but it does seem like they're going to march around for a day and then concede.
