Hero pay proposal talks continue
The DFL members of the Frontline Worker Pay Working Group announced to the public today their proposal seeking to recognize more workers.
Jesslynn Phillips believes she and her coworkers are worthy to be included in the overdue bonus pay proposals Minnesota legislators have been working on. “I help hundreds of customers each shift,” said Phillips. “My customers have a positive attitude…they let me and my coworkers know how much they dislike the pandemic and how it has caused many inconveniences in their lives. My coworkers and I continue to keep Minnesotan families fed.”
Today, the DFL members responded alongside workers, restating their proposal that intends to be more inclusive. They estimate 667,000 workers will be eligible for a payment of $375.
