Minneapolis' largest businesses add to push against workplace changes
Minnesota’s largest and most powerful business group is mobilizing its members against a proposal to impose the nation’s most sweeping sick-leave and scheduling changes on Minneapolis employers.
On Tuesday, 80 members of the Minnesota Business Partnership — a group that includes the leaders of Target, U.S. Bancorp, Xcel Energy and Mayo Clinic, among other major employers — convened a phone-conference strategy session. The goal: Defeat a set of proposals to guarantee more predictable schedules and paid sick leave. The group joins a growing number of business owners who say the plans could ravage Minneapolis employers.
