LANSING, MI (WKOW) -- There was plenty of uproar at the Capitol in Michigan Thursday.
It all surrounded controversial legislation involving unions.
The state's Senate and House approved right-to-work bills, which limit the right to strike and picket and prevent unions from collecting fees from non-union workers.
Supporters say the bills will make the state more competitive in attracting businesses.
Thousands of people protested against the legislation, so many that the capitol was closed for a time for safety reasons.
They say the legislation was rushed through and that right-to-work bills lead to lower pay and fewer benefits.
