Labor summit: 'Beat Bush agenda, save affirmative action!'

May 4, 2006

During the recent Labor Summit on Affirmative Action and Segregation in Detroit, Governor Jennifer Granholm said Michigan's Legislature has repeatedly singled out Detroit for punishment by cutting funding for Wayne State University and earmarking mass transit funds and increased tax revenues for every city except Detroit. Granholm added that the Republican Legislature is "all about division" - rural residents from city dwellers, black from white, and haves from have-nots.
