The following is what gets to me. If current events are any indication, look for this type of law coming to other states soon. That said, I really feel for the teachers in Detroit. How can they plan their lives if they keep getting lay off notices that may or may not lead to a job loss. What's the point of negotiating anything in good faith if someone else has the power to nullify the agreement at a moment's notice?

"Under a law known as Public Act 4, passed by the Michigan legislature and signed by the state's new Republican governor in March, emergency managers like Bobb have sweeping powers. They can tear up existing union contracts, and even fire some elected officials, if they believe it will help solve a financial emergency.
"I fully intend to use the authority that was granted under Public Act 4," Bobb said in the statement."
