A Change in Position

Michigan became one of 24 states to pass "right-to- work" laws this week, weakening the power of labor unions that have long been fixtures in the state's labor force. According to some reports, African-Americans and Latinos benefit most from labor unions, and now have the most to lose once the laws go into effect next year.  Britt Middleton (Photo:  Bill Pugliano/Getty Images)
