Out-of-state jobs luring MI seekers

Then you have companies here in MI that run a credit check before hiring you. If you have bad credit and a good explanation....the y say "thank you but NO thank you". Here where I work I watched as a potential temporary employee was told "we like you and if everything checks out...you have the job". The potential employee had his wife walk out on him and leave him high and dry 2 years ago...spotless credit prior to. After the credit check came in he got an email asking for a credit explanation. Then a call saying "sorry". ... How are we supposed to keep our people employed and out of bankruptcy if this is how our employers are allowed to work? You don't work on "credit" . The company owes us at the end of the week...not the other way around!! Credit should have nothing to do with it, especially for a temporary position. Did I mention that this was a BANK!!! And the position has no access to any type of funds...no chance of stealing!!! If I could I would be headed out of the state too. I was lucky enough to see this coming and sold my house 2 years ago so I was prepared for the worse. MI has a long road to travel!!!  (Feb 11, 2009 | post #29)

3 hospitalized after Sparta crash

I am glad that others are beginning to see the issues with roads and EMS response time. The county has been even called out to calls with a request for salt to help make a scene safer and a 2 hour response time was estimated. Get a clue....we need to be off scene in 10 minutes if possible!! Let's get the roads safe before needing to travel them!!! Something needs to be done.  (Dec 18, 2008 | post #9)

Arrest made in Angel Tree thefts

I just think the comments on how she looks is harsh...that was all....do I think she is innocent? Probably not. And about reality...believe me in my line of work I have a good enough grasp on reality.  (Dec 12, 2008 | post #107)

Flagman hit by vehicle

We are all sorry for the pain on both sides of this incident but before you start calling names and assume what was seen by the driver you should first know who you are talking about and have a visual yourself, and it is obvious you have no clue. I am sure everyone of your friends and family members are thankful for life and you should focus on that. I know there is pain also on the other side and no matter what you think this IS a life altering event on all sides...not just yours. And you'd know that if you knew who you were talking about.  (Dec 9, 2008 | post #34)

What will winter be like this year?

Rivals accurate...actuall y look at the crop that is produced by the trees....the accorn crop this year is huge and I have never seen a mild winter when nature is preparing wildlife w/ lots of food...I see lots of snow and a LONG winter this year....may not be cold....but we will have lots of snow and I think it will even stay.... Has anyone looked at the alminac?  (Oct 15, 2008 | post #52)

If you watch nature it can tell you pretty accurately what it is preparing for...for the most part at least. I have always had oak trees in my yard and the bigger the accorn crop, the more snow. I think it is natures way of preparing wildlife for a long winter....  (Oct 15, 2008 | post #51)
