Governor Mark Dayton: A Jobs Plan for Minnesota

Getting Minnesota Back to Work

Governor Mark Dayton and Minnesota state Democrat-Farmer-Labor (DFL) Legislators have announced a plan to put thousands of Minnesotans back to work this year. The plan includes a number of proposals designed to provide incentives for businesses to hire out-of-work Minnesotans, invest in infrastructure and train workers for the jobs of the future.

MN Gov Dayton“From day one, my top priority has been to get Minnesota working again. Our jobs plan will help businesses create good jobs for thousands of Minnesotans who are looking for work. We need to focus on what we know will work: investing in infrastructure, providing incentives to private sector businesses to create more jobs, and training workers for high-demand careers. I hope that this legislation to put Minnesota back to work will be among the first I will sign during the upcoming session.”

The members of Local 49 applaud the jobs-centered initiatives described by the Governor and his party. We look forward to getting to work on projects such as the Vikings stadium and replacing the dangerously decrepit Stillwater bridge as soon as possible, MN State outlineknowing that returning our state to economic prosperity starts by putting hard-working Minnesotans back on the job, earning fair wages and the associated benefits that allow them and their families to thrive.

“We all know Minnesota is facing a serious jobs deficit, and it’s clear that we have to make creating jobs our number one priority this session. Our jobs plan is comprised of smart, targeted and proven strategies that will spark new hiring, get tens of thousands of Minnesotans back to work… It’s critical that we move quickly to pass this comprehensive jobs package early in session, so we can make sure our employers and workers start seeing the benefits of these initiatives as soon as possible,” said DFL Senate Minority Leader Tom Bakk.
