opinion: Michigan needs to remake image to become more business-friendly
The standard of living for the rest of the taxpayers is lower because of the high tax burden we have to pay to support the union members benefits (outlandish retirement benefits, tax bailouts etc.).
If it’s such a good thing to be a union member, then they should not have any problems getting people to join. Michigan is the only state that lost population because of the hostile union presence.
Let’s keep our friends and family from moving out of the state by remaking our image to a business-friendly state with good wages and benefits like Indiana or Oklahoma so businesses will once again look to locate in Michigan.
