I read an article in the Escanaba Daily Press where Congressman Dan Benishek says people are unemployed because they don't want to work. Frankly, I couldn't believe this. I have family, friends and neighbors that have been looking for work for months or even years.
To suggest that people are lazy and don't want to work is ridiculous. Who doesn't know people that would take work if they could get it? Good jobs that provide livable wages and affordable health care are hard to come by in Michigan, and you don't need to be a rocket scientist (or a doctor) to figure that out.
What has Congressman Benishek done to bring jobs to the U.P.? He is a do-nothing congressman.
