Senate Roll Call 156 on The amendment
Now that there is no single business tax, no michigan business tax, and now grocery stores do not have to mark their items; will we see grocery prices go down? I will be watching. Will businesses like II Stanley and Denso start hiring off the street instead of using temp agencies? Will we see wages go up? I do not see how taxes solve our problems. We need to make things in Michigan again. I've lost two jobs due to outsourcing. One was outsourced to Mexico and now this one to privatization. I'm not getting any younger and at my age do not wish to go into 20K debt to get another degree. I will be watching and I always turn out to VOTE!
