Tomorrow, the Minnesota Senate will vote on a bill being supported by the MN Chamber that would explicitly preempt local governments from enacting wage and benefit mandates on employers. This stems from efforts by the Cities of Minneapolis/St. Paul to mandate paid safe/sick time for employers in their city (with discussions on minimum wage, paid parental leave etc. pending). The worry is that this could spread to other cities across the state, creating a patchwork of laws and mandates on businesses.
Senator Frentz is currently a “no” vote on this bill. If you’d like to weigh in with Sen. Frentz with your thoughts, now is the time to do it. You can find his contact information here.
