Proposed bill prohibits local governments from setting local minimum wage!

Last Thursday, the Michigan Senate approved a bill that would prohibit local governments from setting local minimum wages or other employment requirements. Supporters of the bill want to prevent local ordinances they believe would defer economic development. Opponents argue that the bill takes away the ability of local governments to decide what is best for their communities. What are your thoughts on this newly proposed legislation? Is it a good idea or not? We want to hear from you!
