In their neverending quest to screw over workers to benefit employers, Republicans in Michigan are now turning their attention to those making minimum wage. A bill that would lower the minimum wage by 15% for those under 20 years old was passed out of the Senate Commerce Committee today.

The bill's sponsor, Senator Margaret O'Brien (R-Portage), claims it will solve a problem which doesn't actually exist.
