ICYMI: Governor Walz Announces That Frontline Worker Payments Go Out This Week

Minnesota Republican gubernatorial candidate Scott Jensen opposed payments to heroic frontline Minnesotans

 

October 5, 2022



St. Paul, MN – Yesterday, Governor Tim Walz and Lieutenant Governor Peggy Flanagan announced that over 1 million Minnesota frontline workers will receive $487.45 each to reward their bravery on the frontlines of the COVID 19 pandemic. Payments will begin on Wednesday October 5th.

Minnesota GOP gubernatorial candidate Scott Jensen dismissed the bipartisan frontline worker payments. Jensen has a long history of opposing common sense, bipartisan policies that help working and middle-class families. He proposed untying inflation from minimum wage and opposed the 2022 budget deal that would have sent checks directly to working Minnesotans and invested in early childcare programs.
