    A new presidential order is giving many young, undocumented immigrants in mid-Michigan a shot at legal temporary employment. The DACA program, or Delayed Action for Childhood Arrivals, took effect Wednesday. The Obama Administration order applies to young undocumented immigrants who arrived here before the age of 16. Ramiro Estrada arrived in Lansing as a 12-year old. He would like a job to continue his college education in nursing. I will be able to apply for a job and get the money to keep on going with my schooling, he says. Immigrants, clergy and other advocates are holding a workshop about the process Wednesday afternoon at Cristo Rey Catholic Church in Lansing. Conservatives argue DACA is unfair. Republican state representative Rick Jones of Grand Ledge says such measures fly in the face of legal immigrants and other citizens who cant find work.

    Today we look at how economic incentives are used in the Lansing area. There is fierce competition out there among cities and communities, not just in Michigan but across the country, to attract new businesses that will bring jobs and economic growth. This competition often gives companies the upper-hand when asking for tax abatements and other incentives from local taxpayers. But just how much should Lansing give up in tax revenue for, say, 1000 new jobs? And once that deal is made, how are the numbers tracked to see if, indeed, those new jobs have materialized? What are the consequences if they don’t?

    Millions of Americans have serious doubts about globalization. Jeffery Rothstein is a Michigan scholar whose new book “When Good Jobs Go Bad,” explores the declining job quality that he says is also a result of globalization. After several decades of globalization, American critics of the phenomenon have become a force to be reckoned with. They says globalization's economic and social benefits have been oversold. They dismiss the mantra that free trade, expanded immigration and technological progress are unquestionably good. They point to the a continuing tide of U.S. auto manufacturing facilities in Mexico as the prime example. The 2016 presidential election is the setting for a lot of the criticism, notably from Republican front runner Donald Trump and Democrat Bernie Sanders. Jeff Rothstein is a professor of sociology at Grand Valley State University in Allendale. He's the author of the recently released book “When Good Jobs Go Bad: Globalization, De-unionization, and Declining Job
