Michigan retailers are ramping up their campaign to get rid of the state's unique law requiring price tags on most items.
The Michigan Retailers Association commissioned a study released Monday that says the state's item pricing law is a hidden tax on consumers. The study says it results in higher prices for shoppers and is no longer needed for consumer protection.
Michigan Retailers Association President James Hallan says he does not think overall retail employment would drop if the law is repealed.
The United Food and Commercial Workers union disagrees and says jobs would be lost, particularly in grocery stores.
Massachusetts is the only other state with a similar law and it applies only to food retailers.
Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder says the item pricing law should be repealed.
