And On Monday (the cost of doing business in Michigan goes up)

We slide a little deeper into the fiery pit of progressivism  – (Reposted from RightMi.com)

Because everyone knows that ALL employers are filthy rich.

Because everyone knows that ALL employers are filthy rich.

Beginning September 1, 2014, Michigan employers will face an increase in the minimum wage rate from $7.40 to $8.15. The first rate increase since Granholm jacked employers in 2008, this new change to state law marks the beginning of a gradual 25 percent increase of the minimum wage resulting in $9.25 per hour by 2018. The State of Michigan makes new online resources available at www.Michigan.gov/miosha to help workers and employers face the facts as the new rate takes effect.

On May 27, 2014 the ‘Workforce Opportunity Wage Act,’ Public Act 138 of 2014 (Act 138), took immediate effect replacing the Michigan Minimum Wage and Overtime Act (Act 154). Act 138 is enforced by the Wage and Hour Program within the Technical Services Division of the Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration (MIOSHA). And we know No-One enforces like MIOSHA.

Act 138 applies to employers in Michigan that have two or more employees age 16 and older. A copy of Act 138, along with guidelines and the required poster may be downloaded from the Wage and Hour Program website. Continue reading And On Monday (the cost of doing business in Michigan goes up)

Hinoki School Shutdown Highlights LPS Dysfunction

MAPSA Calls on State Superintendent to Investigate an Authorizer, Livonia Public Schools, for ‘Unethical and Irresponsible Practices’

LANSING, Michigan (August 18, 2014) – The Michigan Association of Public School Academies (MAPSA) is calling on State Superintendent Mike Flanagan to immediately investigate the Livonia Public Schools district for unethical practices related to the Hinoki International School.

The Hinoki International School is a charter school specializing in Japanese language and culture that was authorized by the Livonia school district and opened in 2011. Hinoki had a successful and growing program, expanding to 130 students in 2013-14. Faced with its own declining enrollment, the Livonia Public Schools decided to revoke Hinoki’s charter this summer so that it could start its own Japanese immersion program - in essence, stealing away a successful charter school.

MEA Encourages Democrat Crossover For THEIR Candidate

Well, it seems conservatives might have a clue as to who NOT to vote for in August’s 47th District State House race.

The wary might be concerned that Democrats are being recruited by the Michigan Education Association to crossover into Republican primaries.  From Cap Con

meavaupelMEA political action committee letter urges Democrat members to vote as Republicans in Michigan’s 47th House district race.

By Jack Spencer
July 14, 2014

A division of the Michigan Education Association’s political action committee, which is funded in part by teachers, is urging its members to cast votes in Michigan’s 47th House District Republican primary even if they consider themselves to be Democrats.

In a letter labeled: “IMPORTANT!,” the MEA/Livingston County PAC Screening and Recommending Committee pressed union members to cast votes for Handy Township Supervisor Henry Vaupel, a Fowlerville veterinarian who is one of five candidates on the GOP primary ballot. A designation at the top of the letter reads in bold print: “To: All MEA members residing in House District 47,” then goes on to emphasize the Aug. 5 date of the primary and describe the district’s geographical location.

A recent insert into the Petoskey news should run shivers up and down Representative Frank Foster’s spine.  The two-term incumbent is identified correctly as a puppet for Lansing lobbyists, and a failure as a representative in his own district.

Should Michigan Vote No On 1?

no-on-one

Reposted from RightMi.com

It’s seemed all too easy for this to almost slip right by, unquestioned as we fight our local political battles..

Folks have been trying to figure out the impact of proposal one. The complicated gobbledygook language contained in multiple bills as a part of PA 80 has not helped, and the question remains: “Why is it necessary to have the voters act to ‘reduce’ taxes?” Before we as a state vote on ANYTHING, it ought to be at least reasonably explained.

Indeed, I don’t know anyone who likes the personal property tax, but will the ‘devil we know’ be replaced by one even more destructive? Rose Bogaert, of the Wayne County Taxpayers Association lays it out:

Wayne County Taxpayers Association Position Paper

Proposal 1
APPROVAL OR DISAPPROVAL OF AMENDATORY ACT TO REDUCE STATE USE TAX AND REPLACE WITH A LOCAL COMMUNITY STABILIZATION SHARE TO MODERNIZE THE TAX SYSTEM TO HELP SMALL BUSINESSES GROW AND CREATE JOBS
The amendatory act adopted by the Legislature would:

  1. Reduce the state use tax and replace with a local community stabilization share of the tax for the purpose of modernizing the tax system to help small businesses grow and create jobs in Michigan.
  2. Require Local Community Stabilization Authority to provide revenue to local governments dedicated for local purposes, including police safety, fire protection, and ambulance emergency services.
  3. Increase portion of state use tax dedicated for aid to local school districts.
  4. Prohibit Authority from increasing taxes.
  5. Prohibit total use tax rate from exceeding existing constitutional 6% limitation. Should this law be approved?

I want to state that the Personal Property Tax is a horrible tax and a burden to business and employment. If I were to say to the average taxpayer that their stove, refrigerator, washer, dryer and any other appliance or furniture were all subject to personal property tax for 10 years after purchase with a reduction each year for depreciation, we would have a revolt.
