Limited Workplace Mandates
Michigan employers compete worldwide for talent and strive to provide competitive benefits. The so-called family and medical paid leave program amounts to a new $1-1.5 billion-plus annual payroll tax on every worker and business. This policy would create a massive new state bureaucracy, putting the government in charge of paid-time off (PTO claims) and hurting those it claims to help, especially small businesses and Michiganders living paycheck-to-paycheck.
Clean, Affordable and Reliable Energy
A clean energy future is vitally important, but we must be realistic in how we get there, balancing clean energy goals with the need for safe, reliable and affordable energy. Doing otherwise will only hurt our small businesses, families and economy, reversing progress we've achieved in recent years.
Employees and employers alike are looking for certainty. Yet pending legislation would create more uncertainty by unleashing Michigan’s 1,800 local units of government and allowing them to enact their own laws governing workplaces across Michigan. Creating a complex web of rules and regulations governing private employers’ relations with their employees will create inconsistency, confusion and a bureaucratic, red-tape nightmare for job providers—and employees.
FUTURE DEPENDS ON ECONOMIC GROWTH
It has never been more important for Michigan’s job providers to have a voice in fast moving public policy debates. Too many new proposals will halt economic growth and spur additional population decline, hurting businesses and workers alike. The Great Lakes Growth Coalition is working hard to convey how policies may impact employers, employees and communities and ensure that Michigan is a flourishing state with a growing economy and population.
