If the legislature fails to act by April 11, state workers will get a 3% pay increase in October. State employees are good workers and deserve our support.
But when taxpayers have seen their pay cut or frozen for several years to a point where their per capita income is now below the national average, it makes no sense to ask them to raise the pay of State workers who are paid above the national average when critical state services are being cut.
You can do something about it – call your legislator NOW and tell them you want them to act to stop the pay raise! Visit www.MichiganTurnaroundPlan.com and click the“Tell Your Legislator How You Feel” button to find your representatives and write them a note!
