State of Minnesota secondary Archives: on Jobs


Erin Murphy: Reliable jobs that pay a living wage

As the daughter of a union auto worker, I understand the importance of a reliable job that pays a living wage. As a nurse, I saw first-hand the necessity for affordable health care coverage. As the mother of twin girls, I know that we need an education system that prepares every child to be successful & ready to participate in the economy of our future. And as a legislator, I've learned that these things must work together in order to ensure every person has a shot at the good life here in Minnesota.

Kurt Bills: Card-carrying union member, but supports Right-to-Work

Raised in a blue-collar home, he worked construction as a young man to pay for college and has been a card-carrying union member since the age of 18, he explains.

Still, Bills views unions as monopolies and supported the so-call Right-to-Work amendment.
