A bill that opponents say “puts the thumb on the scale” for management passed the Minnesota State House on Tuesday. Supporters say the bill prevents “automatic raises” for public employees after a union contract expires and while the next contract is being negotiated. The House included a Senate provision that exempts law enforcement and fire fighters from the restriction.
