Stateside: Wednesday, July 20, 2022
This time on Stateside, a Michigan Court of Claims judge has ruled that the legislature has to implement the original version of a 2018 ballot initiative raising minimum wage and paid sick leave. We looked at the ruling's potential impacts on small businesses.
Next, the Plowshares Theatre in Detroit has a new musical Hastings Street and is bringing back its New Griots Initiative. We discussed how it showcases the works of emerging and established African-American playwrights.
