Senate Roll Call 1 on 2011 House Bill 4403
So I have to ask; Why the few of us that still have a job are going to be "FORCED" to lose everything because somebody else breaks the law? I work out of town so the last time I got stuck in the jury debacle it cost me just over $1100.00 in lost wages. The whopping $15.00 a day for pay is what it cost to park in downtown Detroit.
I want to personally thank the MI lawmakers for making yet another thing in MI so bad that I am feeling I need to move out of this state.
