Minnesota AFL-CIO Statement on Emmer Plan
St. Paul – Upon learning of Republican Gubernatorial Candidate Tom Emmer’s “budget plan” today, Minnesota AFL-CIO President Shar Knutson issued the following statement:
“Tom Emmer’s so-called plan is simply more of the same Tim Pawlenty policies of the last eight years that have failed to create family-sustaining jobs for middle class Minnesotans
As a legislator, Tom Emmer voted against job creation at nearly every turn; so it’s hard to take him seriously.
Mark Dayton is the only candidate for Governor with a proven record and plan to return Minnesota to prosperity.”
The Minnesota AFL-CIO is labor federation made up of more than 1,000 affiliate unions, representing over 300,000 working men and women throughout the state.
Prepared and paid for by the Minnesota AFL-CIO, 175 Aurora Avenue, Saint Paul, MN 55103. This is an independent expenditure and is not approved by any candidate nor is any candidate responsible for it.
