LANSING – The Michigan AFL-CIO issued the following statement today from President Ron Bieber commenting on news that Lt. Governor Brian Calley is running for governor:

“Michigan’s working families need leaders who will have our backs and work to build an economy that works for everyone. But Brian Calley has been Rick Snyder’s right-hand man for the past seven years, working side-by-side to rig the rules of Michigan’s economy to favor the wealthy and big corporations at the expense of regular working families. Remember, it was Brian Calley who cast the tie-breaking vote to give a $2 billion tax break to wealthy corporations, while creating the new Snyder Retirement Tax on seniors’ pensions. One thing is clear, Brian Calley and Bill Schuette both represent a third term for Rick Snyder, and they’d both be terrible for working people in Michigan.”
