On Wednesday of this week, Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges issued a press release stating that she would no longer pursue the fair scheduling requirements of the proposed Working Families Agenda, but that she would continue to support the proposed paid sick leave requirements.

The Minneapolis City Council is still accepting comments on the paid sick leave proposal through today.  Employers who feel strongly about the proposal should send their comments to workingfamilies@minneapolismn.gov by the close-of-business today.
