Economic Development Groups Praise “Good Jobs For Michigan”

The freshly adopted “Good Jobs” program by state lawmakers is a hit on both-sides of the aisle. At least that’s according to JoAnn Crary, president of Saginaw Future, who spoke to Michigan New Network about the issue.

“The interesting thing is that the public wanted it too,” Crary said. “There was a poll, and survey results showed overwhelming support for the legislation across the board.”

The legislation, which was approved Wednesday by the Michigan House, creates tax incentives for large job providers by letting companies keep up to 100% of withheld taxes for certain new employees.
