When the Michigan state legislature gets back to work on Tuesday, it's expected to make Michigan the 24th state with a right-to-work law.

It means that workers in Michigan -- a cradle of organized labor -- couldn't be required to pay union dues in order to be employed.

Republicans, with support from the governor, pushed legislation through the state House and Senate Thursday, amid walkouts by Democrats and protests from union activists who swarmed the state Capitol.

At one point, police used pepper spray to subdue demonstrators who tried to rush the Senate chamber.
