I heard this story yesterday morning. I was horrified to think that parents taking care of their disabled children could be FORCED to pay union dues to SEIU because the parents chose to stay at home and care for their children themselves. Not only is it appalling that these folks are being forced against their will to join the union, we also know those union dues are a money laundering scheme for the Democrat Party.
If you haven't heard this story yet, be ready to get really po'd.
Parents Taking Care of Disabled Kids Made to Pay

What would you say if you found out someone was taking money - without permission - from medicaid checks meant for disabled children? Well, it's happening to thousands of families all over Michigan right now. This money is being deducted automatically by a state agency and given directly to a union, the Service Employees International Union (SEIU).
Whether they like it or not, these people are classified as state employees because they provide care for their children, who would have otherwise ended up in a nursing home. Each month, they see a portion of their Medicaid checks siphoned off to a union that provides them with no benefits. One local couple says they've tried to get out, but to no avail. Fox 2's Andrea Isom talked to them tonight, along with an expert who's been trying to end this questionable practice for years.
