Jobless share stories to urge benefits extension


Don Grenke needs a job before his last $500 in the bank runs out. He's worked since he was 16 — doing everything from pumping gas to manual labor. But now Grenke, 56, of Ferndale, is worried his unemployment insurance soon will run out and he and his wife, who does not work, will be left with nothing. "I feel dejected, like somebody is stepping on my back," Grenke said after a forum Tuesday at the Southfield Public Library. The event was sponsored by Rep. Sander Levin, D-Royal Oak, to highlight what supporters say is the need to extend federal unemployment benefits. "I worked for 16 ...

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Sander Levin (MI-09), Ranking Member of the Ways and Means Subcommittee on Health, today released the following statement after reports that Anthem will pull out of the ACA exchange in Ohio, citing uncertainty surrounding key issues, including federal cost-sharing reduction payments:  “This is the latest example of President Trump and Republicans in Congress destabilizing health care coverage for the American people.

Trump Budget Hurts Families in Macomb and Oakland Counties
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Sander Levin (MI-09) today released the following statement in response to President Trump’s budget proposal: “President Trump’s budget would cause irreparable harm for Michiganders.

Levin Statement on Visit by Prime Minister of Vietnam
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Sander Levin (MI-09) today issued the following statement on the meeting between President Trump and the Prime Minister of Vietnam at the White House. “It is deeply disturbing that the visit of the Prime Minister of Vietnam to the White House today failed to address that nation’s continual violation of basic human rights, persecution of political opponents and suppression of labor rights.  To be silent on such issues, not only condemns the people of Vietnam to continued oppression, but it also hurts workers here in the U.S. when they have to compete with workers who are denied these basic rights and receive very low wages.  In Vietnam, workers do not have the right to form or join an independent union of their choosing, which at least partially explains why the wages of workers in Vietnam are so low, with a minimum wage that is only one-tenth of the U.S. minimum wage.  "Vietnam had indicated agreement to adopt basic labor rights, including the formation
