    • Minneapolis employers are unique and cannot conform to the recommended one-size fits-all agenda without problems resulting.
    • Minneapolis employers can open and thrive in this community because of the flexibility they are allotted. Taking away this flexibility will hurt our economy and numerous small businesses.
    • Employees enjoy and benefit from the current flexible environment and fear that these mandates will cause them more harm than good.
    • A universal sick and safe leave mandate–while well intended—actually discourages new businesses to open in Minneapolis.
    • Minneapolis has an unemployment rate of less than 4%. Overbearing mandates on our employers could unfortunatley increase that rate as economic growth slows or employers are forced adjust their workforce.
    • Many employers cannot afford the human resource department needed to deal with bureaucratic mandates.
    • Other reasonable sick and safe time approaches need to be considered instead of regulations and enforcement of city-determined standards against local employers.


    A one-size-fits-all mandate isn’t leadership, and it’s certainly not innovative.
