After days of speculation both chambers passed right to work bills on Thursday night, something republicans are celebrating.
Senator Arlan Meekhof: "I would say its a proud day for Michigan."
But for those who came to protest seeing the bills pass was bitter.
So what do republicans say to all of the workers who say this is the wrong move?
Sen. Meekhof: "Well I say that I think the proof will be in the pudding."
That's exactly what democrats say they're worried about.
Senator Gretchen Whitmer: "You look at right to work states, people make less money there's higher unemployment and there's more people on Medicaide, is that Governor Snyder's vision for Michigan?."
Representative Barb Byrum: "I'm speechless quite frankly, what happened on the house floor is not democracy, what happened on the house floor is partisan politics."
Sen. Meekhof: "I don't think this is a partisan issue, I don't, this is about these hardworking families in Michigan being able to keep more of their own money that they earn."
But for the hundreds who raised their voices, democrats promise to keep going.
Sen. Whitmer: "This fight is not over."
Rep. Byrum: "We can fight and we will fight until the very end."
Though that end may be just around the corner.
The Senate has passed a bill making Michigan a "Right To Work" state.
The vote - 22 to 16 - broke largely along party lines. Four Republicans joined Democrats in voting "no."
The 7:45 p.m. vote came less than two hours after the Michigan House of Representatives passed a similar bill.
There are differences between the versions passed by each body. The House bill only applied to private workers. The Senate bill applied to both public and private employees. That will have to be reconciled before it goes to the governor's desk. That will likely happen some time next week.
And Governor Rick Snyder says he intends to sign the bill.
Union members converged on the Capitol and fought tooth and nail against the bill - which would give workers the right to decide whether to join a union and pay union dues. They packed the Senate gallery and shouted after the vote.
Stacia Mullaney is at the Capitol and will have a report tonight on 6 News at 11.
