National holiday recognizing the social and economic contributions made by American workers.

9282798555_56c35af6d7_mOur law firm will be closed on September 7, 2015 in observance of Labor Day.

This federal holiday is held on the first Monday in September and is dedicated to American workers.

Labor Day is the unofficial last day of summer. It gives families a chance to spend extra time together enjoying late summer weather.

We hope our blog readers also take a moment to reflect on the social and economic contributions of the labor movement during this holiday weekend.

Going backwards

Michigan has seen its fair share of setbacks in the last several years. Income inequality is at an all-time high. It seems like the wealthy keep getting richer and the middle class are being squeezed out.

Right-to-work legislation was passed and collective bargaining has been greatly weakened. This results in lower wages and less job security.

Workers’ compensation reform has made it harder to collect benefits. A recent study from the National Academy of Social Insurance (NASI), a nonprofit and nonpartisan organization, found -24.9 percent growth in total benefits paid during a five year period between 2009 and 2013. This ranks dead last in the survey of 51 states (includes District of Columbia).

Reversing the trend

We encourage you to speak with friends and family members about these issues. Explain how these changes have affected your life personally. Fight the political spin machine with your truth.

We have another election cycle in 2016 and this gives you a chance to have your voice heard. Volunteer for candidates who support your best interests. Get out and vote!
