The Obama administration's proposed new overtime rule would benefit 100,000 Michigan workers.  In a statement, Ron Bieber, President of the Michigan AFL-CIO stated: "Since 1975, overtime protections have been gutted by inflation without a significant adjustment.  By indexing the threshold for overtime pay to inflation, the new rule will help protect wages from being eroded by rising costs going forward...But many more workers will still be denied overtime pay by their employer.  Moving forward, Michigan's labor movement will keep fighting to make sure this proposal is fully implemented, until every worker is paid fairly for the work they do."
 
U.S. Supreme Court Upholds Gerrymandering Reform In Arizona Print
Tuesday, 30 June 2015 15:06
In a 5-4 ruling Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled to uphold a 2000 initiative adopted by Arizona voters that would combat gerrymandering there, and to create an independent commission to set boundary lines for state and congressional elections.  The ruling keeps the possibility of a ballot measure on redistricting in Michigan open.  The idea of a ballot proposal to shift the responsibility of redistricting legislative boundaries in Michigan has been around since the 1990s.  This year, Rep. Jim Townsend (D-Royal Oak), along with leaders of the Michigan Democratic Party, have been considering tying a ballot proposal to create a graduated income tax with a redistricting measure.  Both proposals could be put on the statewide ballot in 2016.
