Show Me the MONEY!

Tuesday, May 27th, 2014

Ever wonder, what happens to YOUR money?
.

Let's "Cut the Pie" into pieces!

. . . Let’s “cut the pie” into pieces and take a good look as to where the money is coming from. NOTICE, the “slice of pie” Businesses contribute and the “slice of pie” Tax payers contribute.

What do you see?

EXACTLY!!!

“Looks like Someone is on a diet!”

The Businesses are making huge profits!  They are raising prices on consumer products and services AND still claim they need to cut-back on hiring workers!

The Michigan Business Tax has tipped the scale in favor of Businesses.

. . . How can private individuals keep picking-up the tab for Businesses who do not pay their fair share in taxes?  Businesses are still raising their prices and giving less, community services are charging more, benefits are shrinking and People are going without, spending more and getting less, taking pay-cuts and  in some cases, have lost their jobs.  JOBS that were supposed to be created when the MBT went into effect. 

. . .  Meanwhile, business keep demanding more and giving back less, all the while creating a bigger imbalance in our economy.

Who allowed this to happen?

. . . Legislators in Lansing following Governor Snyder orders to fall-in-line with his plans of “re-inventing” Michigan.  Once again, something is called one thing and means something completely different.

This IS YOUR Money, Tax Payer Dollars we’re talking about!.

There is a Process and a method they follow but,

 what looks good on paper may not always be good in real life.

State of Michigan Spending - The BIG Picture!

 .

.BOOST the Economy – by Boosting the Minimum Wage and FREEZE Prices

on Services and Purchased Goods until a balance is obtained.

Minimum Wage and Living Wage ARE NOT the same!

. . . Earlier this year, a Petition Drive for a November 2014 Ballot Proposal to increase the Minimum Wage to $10.10 an hour was launched.   On May 28th, 2014 the signatures were submitted.

. . . MEANWHILE: The Workforce Opportunity Wage Act or Senate Bill 934 of 2014 - was passed by the Senate on May 15th, 2014.   The governor and “political-game-players” in the House of Government Operations Committee have under-minded the hard earned efforts of the People of Michigan again by  gutting this Bill drastically!  Lowering the increase, un-tethering minimum wage from inflation and reducing the increase for tipped workers!  Governor Snyder says he wants to “raise” the minimum wage! 

But, is he really?

. . . IF PASSED – The revised version of  Senate Bill  934  of 2014,  will now cancel-out the people’s submitted ballot proposal, making Michigan’s new minimum wage $9.25 an hour instead of $10.10 hour as proposed.  Go.v. Snyder is expected to sign this Bill into Law.   Gov. Synder thinks he is doing a good thing for Michigan Workers . . .

Do you think he is doing the “right” thing for Michigan Families?

IF this were not an Election Year, do you think Governor Snyder
would have agreed to signing this type of Bill in the first place?

PROBABLY Not! .
