Republicans move to exempt 93.5% of Michigan companies from paid sick leave law. What will be Gov. Snyder’s legacy?

As Republicans in Wisconsin and Michigan work to cement their anti-worker agenda into our states’ laws during their petulant, sore loser session before they lose significant political power in 2019, perhaps the most outrageous is the effort to take away sick time pay for workers in over 93% of Michigan’s firms.
