Working Families Agenda Will Help My Small Business’ Bottom Line (October 26, 2015)
By Dwight Alexander, Minneapolis Star Tribune
As a business owner, I strive to do what I can to lift up the community I serve in the Central neighborhood of Minneapolis. It’s the whole reason I do what I do. When my customers don’t have enough in their pockets to pay for a meal, I often cover them until Friday comes and they get paid.
So when I heard about the Working Families Agenda, and the opportunity to create a better quality of life for working people across the city, I was interested in being a part of the process to create a new standard, which in turn would actually help my bottom line.
