Pure Michigan Waste Report Shows State Not Efficient, New Website Launched

The Coalition of State Employee Unions has issued a new report titled Pure Michigan Waste, detailing areas where the State has failed to collaborate with its workers on being more efficient and accountable to Michigan taxpayers.  Highlights include:

  • Management ratios are too high and getting worse
  • Outsourcing to private contractors is rampant and often costs more
  • State administration failing to truly partner with employees/unions on efficiencies

The new report builds off the Coalition Unions’ 2011 New Solutions report, and tracks the State’s progress over the past 2 years.

The Coalition has also launched a new website, WorkingforMichigan.org, which further discusses these concerns.
