Job Creation Package Is Just A Start

The article focuses on a new job creation package in Michigan. The job creation package includes a 100 percent personal property tax credit in 2006 and 2007 for businesses that bring jobs and equipment into Michigan from another state or country. In the past, bankrupt companies would give upper-level employees large severance packages in order to retain them. Now there is a cap on severance pay to prevent that loss of money.
