Buddy, Can You Spare $580?

“Michigan public employees collect fringe benefits that extend what they would be in the private sector by $5.7 billion per year,” McHugh said. “I think if you asked most Michigan residents are you willing to write a check in order to give public employees $580 more than what you get, most would say I don’t think so.”
