Let It Rip Weekend: Unfilled jobs in Michigan; Opioid crisis

Today on Let It Rip Weekend, unemployment numbers are at an 18-year low, but industry leaders in Michigan say there are still high-paying jobs they're hurting to fill. And, the opioid crisis is worse than ever, with 42-thousand deaths last year in the U.S. What can lawmakers do to curb the crisis? Both were topics at this year's Mackinac Policy Conference.

 

On the panel:

Michele Ureste, Workforce Intelligence Network

Mike Bernacchi, University of Detroit Mercy business professor

Sen. Steve Bieda, (D) - Warren

Rep. Klint Kesto, (R) - Commerce Twp.
