The Minnesota Senate voted today (4/20/17) to prevent Minnesota cities from raising the minimum wage or enacting other workplace rules beyond what the state has set. The House version of the bill HF600 has already passed, while the Senate version SF580 passed today. The MLBA, along with several of our coalition partners, have testified in favor of the Uniform Labor Standards Bill in 5 separate House and Senate committees during the 2017 Legislative Session. The bill now goes to a conference committee to iron out final details before the final bill will head to Governor Dayton’s desk. He has not said that he would veto the bill, but said he has concerns about limiting the power of cities and limiting the minimum wage.
