"Republican lame-duck state legislators in Michigan voted this week to gut a bill that would’ve raised the state’s minimum wage and given workers access to paid sick leave.

The state’s outgoing Republican governor, Rick Snyder, could soon sign the legislation, the culmination of a GOP strategy that activists say is a straight-up subversion of the democratic process, as well as possibly illegal.

'We consider it just an undermining of democracy, the will of the people, and a slap in the face to all of the work that we did,' said Danielle Atkinson, the Founding Director of Mothering Justice and one of the activists who fought to get the measures on the state’s November ballot. 'I’m incredibly disappointed. I’m upset. Angry. And just sad about all the people that we are wanting to help.'"
