Protected Michigan's workforce and economy by
a. making sure that workers are paid fully for their work (no "forced kickbacks")
b. ensuring the existence of established businesses
c. paying prevailing wages and providing fringe benefits -- an essential element to retaining our state's current skilled workforce and to attracting new entrants into the construction trades.
d. making it worthwhile for the state's contractors and unions to invest the millions of dollars annually in training workers, conducting apprenticeship programs, upgrading worker skills, and building scores of state-of the-art training facilities.
