Statement on New GOP Corporate Tax Giveaway

LANSING – The Michigan AFL-CIO issued the following statement from Ron Bieber today commenting on new Republican legislation that would allow corporations to keep up to 100 percent of their employees’ income taxes to pay for new corporate tax breaks:

“This legislation is a raw deal for Michigan. The idea that a worker would pay their income taxes directly to their employer to subsidize their own salary is just nuts. This is really just another example of how Republicans are rigging the economy to favor their corporate donors over regular working people. Instead of giving more handouts to big corporations, we need both parties in Lansing to start working together to invest in education and infrastructure to build an economy that works for everyone, not just the wealthy.”
