Being Christian Doesn't Give You the Right to Discriminate

The fight here is not about religious freedom. The courts have already determined what is and isn't covered, and arguments like the one presented by Jeremy Tedesco show an ignorance to the facts in order to feign oppression.

Fight for 15 Keeps on Stepping

Robert L. Borosage | July 23, 2015 | Politics
The Fight for 15 movement is gaining momentum. It has won victories in Los Angeles, Los Angeles County, San Francisco, Seattle and SeaTac. Yesterday, a New York State Wage Board formally recommended a $15.00 minimum wage for the fast food industry in New York. Governor Cuomo could move that to into law after reviewing it. The University of California just announced it would raise its minimum wage for several thousand workers to $15.00. The $15.00 minimum is likely headed to a referendum vote in the District of Columbia next year. Pressure is now building on the president to act. He deserves credit for issuing orders raising the minimum wage of contract employees to $10.10, and requiring contractors to obey various workplace laws. Now federal employees are striking for $15.00 and a union.

Dearborn's Legacy Is More Than a Statue

Brian Stone | July 20, 2015 | Detroit
A few nights ago a cool summer breeze wafted down Barrie Street on the east side of Dearborn. I was sitting on a porch with my friend, Steve, sipping ice cold water and enjoying a full belly after a feast for Eid.

An Open Letter to Michigan Governor Rick Snyder: Free Richard Wershe Jr.

Dean Dauphinais | July 13, 2015 | Crime
Governor Snyder, I have no sympathy for drug dealers. Drugs took one of my sons -- and our entire family -- on a roller coaster ride through hell for seven years. But I don't think anyone should have to suffer the injustice that Richard Wershe Jr. has suffered.
