ST. PAUL, MN – Senate DFL Leader Melisa López Franzen (DFL-Edina) issued the following statement on Labor Day 2022:
“On Labor Day we honor working men and women across Minnesota, who are central to our state’s success and to the success of our businesses and communities. Over the past three years, workers have kept our state running and thriving amid challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. It was their resilience that made Minnesota the economic leader it is today.
“This year, we have a new milestone to celebrate: the lowest unemployment rate of any state in the history of the union. The broad growth in jobs and wages is evidence of Minnesota’s resurgent economy and what we can accomplish when we come together to support workers at the local, state, and federal level.”
