Don't let ALEC stop better rights for workers!

Update: Sen. Koenen has pulled support from the bill! Great work! You can thank him for pulling his support at (651) 296-5094. Sens. Sparks and Jensen still need to hear from you to pull their support! Contact info and sample script below.

URGENT: Yesterday, a small number of Senators introduced a bill that would deny the right for cities to create better standards on wages, working conditions, and leave policies. This bill comes straight from ALEC, a national organization lobbying to keep corporate profits at all-time highs. This bill would fuel Minnesota's worst-in-the-nation racial disparities. Call these DFL Senate authors and tell them to pull the bill:

Sen. Lyle Koenen (Clara City), (651) 296-5094
Sen. Dan Sparks (Austin), (651) 296-9248
Sen. Vicki Jensen (Owatonna), (651) 296-9457
Here's a sample script: "Hi, my name is ______ and I live in ______. I'm calling to ask you to pull your support for S.F. 565, which would prohibit cities from creating higher minimum wage and worker standards. As a metro resident, I see how important it is for cities to be able to set higher standards for wages and working conditions. Some cities have different needs than others and must be allowed to address them as they see fit. Thank you."
