Discussion: MN Progressive Policy, What’s Next?
How close is MN to a progressive utopia?
In the last two years, with progressive state policy leadership, we’ve moved forward faster than anyone could have imagined, especially after the Pawlenty years. We now have a fairer tax system, better school funding, all-day kindergarten, a strong anti-bullying policy, marriage equality, a higher minimum wage indexed to inflation, and we’re about to make a major investment in our state’s infrastructure.
We’re still far from a progressive utopia. After all, Seattle just passed a $15 minimum wage. So what’s next?
