It's a big day for Governor Rick Snyder as he prepares to give his third State of the State address.
The Governor will make the speech at 7 p.m. Wednesday at the State Capitol.
A union official says workers upset about Michigan's new right-to-work law are planning to protest before Gov. Rick Snyder's third State of the State address.
Edward McNeil is a spokesman for American Federation of State, County & Municipal Employees Council 25. He says workers will be outside the Capitol on Wednesday to demonstrate against the law that he says will drive down wages and elevate Michigan's poverty rate.
The United Auto Workers and other labor groups also are protesting.
Snyder tells Mlive.com that he knows people have faced some "tough issues" and hopes everyone can address them in "a respectful fashion."
The right-to-work law that prohibits requirements that workers pay union dues or fees as a condition of employment.
