Stateside for Wednesday, June 23, 2014
Today on Stateside:
- Governor Snyder signed a law to raise the minimum wage in May, however the fight is not over. "Raise Michigan" is pushing to get a ballot measure in place for the November election. They want to increase the minimum wage more.
- Zoe Clark and Rick Pluta from Michigan Radio’s ‘It’s Just Politics’ talk about the GOP’s spy scheme. Was it really foul play?
- Grand Valley State University’s president, Thomas Haas, joined us to take a look back at the Exxon Valdez oil spill. What have we learned 25 years later?
- Coleman A. Young was Mayor of Detroit from 1974 to 1994. Even though it's been more than 20 years since he was Mayor, and over 16 years since he died, there's a common narrative that Coleman Young was the cause of Detroit's financial ruin. Is he really to blame?
- Should we tear it all down, or take a closer look to see what is worth preserving? Alan Brake from Architects Newspaper and Brian Farkas from the City of Detroit Building Authority tackle that question about Detroit’s blight in Stateside.
- We’ve got snorkeling, surfing, and scuba diving. Now you can add Stand-Up Paddling, or SUP, to your list of activities to try on Michigan’s waters.
