The Contract Clause appears in the United States Constitution, Article I, section 10, clause 1.
|No State shall enter into any Treaty, Alliance, or Confederation; grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal; coin Money; emit Bills of Credit; make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts; pass any Bill of Attainder, ex post facto Law, or Law impairing the Obligation of Contracts, or grant any Title of Nobility.|
So, someone please explain to me how the State of Michigan can give any one singular person the right to negate labor contracts with employees of that government. Or impair negotiated benefits retroactively.
If our state representatives (oops, Republican representatives) were doing their jobs, they would have researched this before acting.
