Minneapolis businesses say new city wage theft ordinance would be confusing and unjustified

A group of Minneapolis business organizations sent a letter to the Minneapolis City Council and Mayor Jacob Frey arguing that a new city proposal on wage theft would be confusing and unjustified in the wake of a new statewide wage theft law that went into effect July 1.

Andy Mannix of the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

“Wage theft is wrong and should be stopped,” the coalition writes. “Let’s work together to create a system in Minnesota and Minneapolis that lifts workers, supports businesses, and fosters an environment where Minneapolis is one of the most desirable places in the country to do business.”

The ordinance is currently set for a public hearing in late July, said Council Member Steve Fletcher, a co-author of the ordinance. “I do not plan to put this on pause,” Fletcher said.
