'Twas the Night Before Janus
‘Twas the night before Janus , and all through the workplace
Union officials were stirring, mounting their case;
With deception and pressure, they’ll bring it to bare
Assuring all workers sign dues cards, no dissention be dared
While the workers were nestled all snug in their beds,
With visions of worker freedom dancing in their heads
The union rep with his card, and the bureaucrat with his pen
Instead settled on trapped deduction for dues, with mischievous grins
When out on the jobsite there arose such a clatter,
Heads popped up from their desks to see what was the matter.
Away to the windows, they flew like a flash,
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash…
When, what to their wondering eyes should appear,
The promise of worker freedom from Mackinac, in its thirty-fourth year.
The Center’s Workers for Opportunity effort so lively and quick,
They knew in a moment the unions’ tactics won’t stick.
More rapid than eagles, the effort’s supporters they came,
Into the states, putting the unions’ monopoly to shame…
No more could they threaten to give employees the boot;
No more paychecks could they skim to capture their loot.
Employees’ voices and choices restored, their constitutional rights intact
Means government stopped propping up union political agendas, that’s a fact.
Indiana’s victory, oh how it twinkles! Opt-in, not opt-out, oh how it’s merry!
Sent a signal to other states – “join in and don’t tarry!”
Florida, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and more
Are poised in 2022 to similarly score!
Workers for Opportunity and our friends are prepared to take flight,
With supporters like you supplying the might.
We’ll approach this season with wins for worker freedom in sight,
SO MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL, AND TO ALL A GOOD-NIGHT!
