Mayor, City Council back off of fair scheduling ordinance

There had been movement in the Fair Scheduling Ordinance for Minneapolis.  This ordinance sought to have pay for workers if their schedule was cancelled or changed.  Businesses raised the concern of paying when there were weather emergencies.

Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges and City Council leaders have backed off from including fair scheduling protections in an ordinance moving through the City Council.

That ordinance had several points, including a $15 minimum wage, paid sick time, wage theft enforcement, and fair scheduling.

A public hearing is set for November 4th at 10am for the Working Families Agenda.

You can read more about it from the Minneapolis City Council website here.
