Representative Donni Steele (R-Orion) recently voted to ensure that workers of all walks of life keep more of their hard-earned paychecks by upholding the “Right to Work” and prevailing wage laws adopted nearly a decade ago.
“I voted to ensure my constituents kept more of their hard-earned paychecks and keep their workplace freedoms intact,” said Rep. Steele. “Every week that goes by, Lansing politicians continue to set our state back and prevent more companies from coming to Michigan and bringing high paying quality jobs. With the majority passing this legislation, we’re sending a clear message to the job creators of the future that they’re not welcomed in Michigan.”
I came to Lansing to help make our state more competitive for job growth and let my constituents keep more of their hard-earned paychecks,” continued Rep. Steele. “This extreme measure did the opposite, setting our state back to the lost decade. That’s why I voted against it.”
The right-to-work repeal legislation is contained within House Bills 4004-05 and the prevailing wage requirement is contained within HB 4007 all advanced along a party line vote. The plans will now be taken up by the Senate for consideration.
“The truth has been revealed about the grinch’s new green energy plan,” said Steele, R-Orion Township. “The governor’s radical new policies push the implementation costs of unreliable green energy onto the consumer. The rate hike cripples families with even higher energy costs. Money that should’ve gone toward family dinners and children’s gifts is being redirected to compensate for past energy policies.”

“The timeline laid out by the governor was clear political manipulation of the election process,” said Steele, R-Orion Township. “Voters in these communities deserved a fair and honest process. Instead, the governor found a new way to operate in the shadows. Potential candidates may have missed the filing opportunity while celebrating Thanksgiving with their families. This political gamesmanship continues to erode our democracy.”
“I’m proud I voted no on the Democrat’s lackluster transparency package. Michigan is tired of secret money influencing its politics. People deserve to know if their lawmaker takes a luxury trip paid for by a nonprofit. Under the plan, elected officials remain exempt from reporting travel and gifts paid for by nonprofit groups.”
