“The emancipation of the working class will only be achieved by the working class itself.”

The Michigan Dept. of Human Services shamefully threw 30,000 people off cash assistance. Now comes a public relations campaign to give the appearance that six months of housing assistance is available for former welfare recipients.

What’s available is Landlord Assistance. Only clients who rent from a “registered vendor” can get this help.

Who has the money to become a “registered vendor” with the state? Big real estate companies, that’s who.
