Growing and strengthening west Michigan's middle class

Pure Michigan takes on new meaning with anti-middle class legislation

GRAND RAPIDS June 23, 2015– Michigan’s legislature, lead by Senate Majority Leader Arlan Meekhof (R-Grand Haven) and Speaker of the House Kevin Cotter (R-Mt. Pleasant), is currently advancing legislation which would severely gouge middle class income, making it increasingly difficult for many Michigan families to make ends meet. They want to pass laws that would allow businesses to reduce the minimum wage based on an employee’s age, eliminate prevailing wage on state-funded construction jobs, and pay for road repairs through the elimination of the Earned Income Tax Credit for low and middle income families. You can read more about these bills here.

If you’re sick and tired of the middle class being attacked by our elected leaders in Lansing, add your name to this petition!

Now you can share just how crazy our state legislators have become in their attacks on the middle class with these Pure Michigan memes that you can post to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or anywhere else you’d like to get the message across. Please be sure to use the hashtag #PureMichigan. On Facebook, include the tags @ArlanMeekhof, @KevinCotter and @RickSnyder. On Twitter, use the tags @ArlanMeekhof, @Rep_Cotter and @OneToughNerd
