Small Business & Economy


Michigan_Map_Green_favicon.png  Michigan needs to start investing in small businesses again.

Michigan_Map_Green_favicon.png  Micro-grants should be made available for new business owners to be able to create new business opportunities for those without access to start-up funds.

Michigan_Map_Green_favicon.png  Any business that pollutes must pay the state for a permit that includes the health and environmental impacts, and any chemicals used must be disclosed to the community at-large.

Michigan_Map_Green_favicon.png  Climate change is real, and green energy is where the jobs of the future are.  Michigan will be a place for climate refugees in the near future, and our local economy must be prepared to accept this new population influx.
