Workshop Title:
Unitarian Universalists and their allies in Traverse City have been demonstrating on a regular basis FOR marriage equality since Judge Bernard Friedman struck down Michigan's ban on same sex marriage on March 7th.  UU's Flint have also been taking their demands for marriage equality to the streets. 
On May 28th,  The Raise Michigan campaign proudly turned in about 320,000 signatures to the Secretary of State ... more than the 258,087 signatures required by law to let Michigan citizens vote this fall on a ballot proposal to raise Michigan's minimum wage to $10.10/hour.  MUUSJN volunteers collected over 5,800 of these signatures.  Clearly this was a THREAT to conservative elements in the Michigan legislature. They quickly passed legislation on May 27th that raised the minimum wage to $9.25/hour, allowed annual increases for inflation and allowed tipped wages to increase at a rate of 38 percent of the standard minimum wage.  The Secretary of State is now counting our signatures.  Take comfort that PEOPLE POWER PRESSURED THE LEGISLATURE to do the right thing of raising the minimum wage, even though the minimum wage still does not lift workers above the poverty level.  Now we need to pressure the legislature to restore our Constitutional rights to vote on a citizens ballot initiative to raise the minimum wage to $10.10/hour this fall.
