The influence of Big Labor over the Lansing City Council recently threatened to halt both the cleanup and economic development of a contaminated riverfront property located in the capitol city's downtown. At issue was the council's last-minute decision to hold up an environmental cleanup tax abatement for the project unless the developer agreed to pay union-scale wages and benefits for all of the construction jobs needed to build his $23.1 million upscale apartment complex.

Interestingly, Lansing Mayor Virg Bernero is standing up for the entrepreneurs and opposing the union-scale wage requirement.
