Quotes

"In order to suspend an increase, the first thing they would have to do is admit that the economy is going down," Winkler said. "then they would have to have a public hearing and face the workers in this state who actually would benefit from the increase. and third of all, they would know that a future democratic administration would likely get to replace that inflationary increase anyway. so, there wouldn't be much gain in doing it."
The bill's sponsor, Democratic Rep. Ryan Winkler of Golden Valley, said Minnesotans will benefit. "by raising the minnesota wage, we will see minnesota workers doing better than they do in surrounding states."
"we can choose to go the low-cost, low-tax, low-wage route. some states are following it, and it is not going very well" Winkler said. "We do not have to accept a race to the bottom."
