Sick time, which means it will not be going on the November ballot. And the Michigan house is expected to do. Exactly the same thing later this afternoon. So the bottom line is Michigan voters will not get a chance will not get a chance to raise the minimum wage and grant sick time to. Some employees. Now, what the Democrats accused the Republicans are doing is a little shift shaft. In other words, they're giving the illusion that they're raising these benefits for workers. But at the end of the day after the election in November, they will come back and change the law that they just passed to take away some of these benefits.
