Beer tax costs us jobs

December 15, 2009 – Lansing State Journal There's a good reason why Michigan's beer tax should not be raised. Increasing the beer tax in Michigan will hurt ordinary citizens. It will also hurt jobs in a wide range of industries, plus Michigan's beer tax is the highest in the region; it is 300 percent higher than in Wisconsin. I work at a local beverage distributor that serves the Lansing community. I know firsthand that higher beer taxes will kill sales, and that's going to hit restaurants, bars, momand-pop retailers - and even my job. It will also impact jobs in transportation, manufacturing, recycling and agriculture. Increasing Michigan's beer tax is a bad idea that will eliminate jobs. Nick Pavona Classic Beers Inc. Lansing
