Looking at the numbers, "Right to Work" passed the House by a final vote of 58 to 52,mostly along party lines, but there were six republicans that voted against "right to work" legislation.
It's proven to be one of the most divisive issues to hit the capitol in years, but "right to work" is something State Representative Mike Shirkey describes as "Labor Freedom".
"Where unions are as free to make their case as workers are to make their choice," said State Rep. (R.) Mike Shirkey.
The newly passed bills, now mean workers in Michigan can opt out of joining a union or paying union dues.
Shirkey says that choice will benefit the entire state, he cites data which shows two thirds of states that have passed similar legislation have higher incomes per capita than Michigan.
"This is something that removes one of the last sustaining obstacles to long term sustain investments in Michigan that will lead to jobs in Michigan and frankly more opportunities for unions," Shirkey said.
"This is the number two issue I received calls on in my office," said State Rep. (R.) Ed McBroom.
108th District Representative Ed McBroom says it's because of those phone calls and personal visits, that he had to vote no on the legislation.
He's one of six to go against his own party.
"Even when I talked to employers in our area, they were very vocal, they were happy and satisfied with the current rrelationship they had with their labor unions and their work stations and didn't want this change to come along," Representative McBroom said.
But it has come along, leaving many wondering how it will play out and what it will mean for those who have jobs.
"Is this going to be problematic for them and their employment, are they going to maintain many of the benefits they've had during union representation," Representative McBroom said.
Questions that workers and ultimately the state, will have to wait and see how this new freedom unfolds.
