Minnesota should have paid family medical leave, financed by employee payroll deductions and employer contributions, says a report from the U-of-M and a state agency. House Democratic Leader Paul Thissen says the purpose is to make sure people can take care of ailing family members while at the same time still be able to put food on the table. Opponents warn mandatory paid family medical leave puts yet another burden on businesses. Minnesota Chamber of Commerce spokesman Cam Winton says it’s not a wise route to a healthy economy for all Minnesotans, and lawmakers should look at other options for paid family medical leave, such as private insurance.
