RIGHT-TO-WORK: In mere days, Republicans have converted Michigan from a seemingly impregnable fortress of organized labor into a right-to-work state, leaving outgunned Democrats and union activists with little recourse but to seek retribution at the ballot box.

SWIFT ACTION: The state House swiftly approved two bills reducing unions' strength Tuesday as thousands of furious protesters at the state Capitol roared in vain. Republican Gov. Rick Snyder signed the measures into law within hours.

WHAT IT MEANS: As one of 24 states with right-to-work laws, Michigan will prohibit requiring nonunion employees to pay unions for negotiating contracts, representing them in grievances and other services.
