Prevailing Wage Support Rally, Lobby Day

Date: 
Wed, Jan 10, 2018 - 8:00am to 3:00pm

City:

LANSING – A rally is scheduled for 8 a.m. Wednesday, Jan. 10 at the State Capitol Building in Lansing to show support for the state’s prevailing wage law. The Capitol is near 124 Capitol Avenue, Lansing MI 48933.

“Let the people decide” is the theme – Michigan voters, not the state Legislature should ultimately decide on whether the Michigan Prevailing Wage Act is retained.

If a petition drive completed this year has enough valid signatures, prevailing wage repeal legislation will be sent to the state Legislature in January for a vote. If there are a majority of yes votes in the state House and Senate, the prevailing wage law is repealed. If there are a majority of no votes in either chamber, it means the prevailing wage repeal question goes before Michigan voters next November – and polls show the law is supported by the public.

Speakers will be announced as the event nears. This event will also be a opportunity for concerned consituents to meet with their Legislators.
