More from the Detroit news article.


"As we see it, students can receive internship credit for basically shaking down Michigan businesses," said Rep. Bob Genetski, R-Saugatuck, chair of the panel.

State Rep. Joe Haveman added the provision at the behest of a restaurant industry lobbyist, but acknowledged in a recent committee meeting he doesn't know what the rule concerns.

A Detroit News inquiry into the origins of the proposed law found it stems from protests staged in 2009 and 2010 during Friday night dinner hours at Andiamo's Dearborn location on Michigan Avenue.

U-M's connection is its School of Social Work internship in community activism, which lets students receive internship credit for working with the workers' organization, said Justin Winslow, vice president of governmental affairs at the Michigan Restaurant Association.

I'll tell ya what, if I'll get 5 credit hours for one weekend and an arrest record for appearing, I'll call that a deal we can carpool for. Lemmie know where to pick people up on the way, and we can all go get a couple semester classes worth of credit in a few days together! lol
