Economic Initiatives

We provide statewide research, outreach, and advocacy on job creation, labor standards, equity & diversity, and the safety net. Current initiatives include a new wage subsidy program, an increased state minimum wage, and state comprehensive underemployment reporting.

Job Creation

We promote strategies for job creation in urban and rural Minnesota. Everyone who is able and willing to work should have the opportunity to work a job that pays a family-supporting wage.

Labor Standards

We promote family-supporting wages, fair benefits, and respectful working conditions for all Minnesotans.

Equity & Diversity

Minnesota must generate jobs for the entire population. Certain demographic groups in Minnesota have suffered inordinate job loss or wage loss. These include women, people of color, and people with low to moderate income.

Strong Safety Net

A strong safety net prevents destitution when work that pays a family-supporting wage is not a real or immediate possibility: for the disabled, for children, for the unemployed, for the underemployed.

For Jobseekers

Looking for work is hard work. There is a lot you need to know: How much do you need to earn to meet your basic family needs? How many jobs are there, and how many jobseekers are competing for those jobs? We have some answers.
