We Must Respect and Honor Frontline Worker Heroes; More is Necessary

South St. Paul, MN - AFSCME Council 5 Executive Director Julie Bleyhl released the following statement after the Legislature passed Unemployment Insurance and Frontline Worker Pay legislative package:

“Governor Tim Walz, Speaker Melissa Hortman, and Senate Majority Leader Jeremy Miller reached an agreement and passed legislation to provide $750 ‘hero pay’ checks to around 660,000 front line worker heroes who Make Minnesota Happen. However, we are disheartened the State Senate Republican majority egregiously rejected more in 'hero pay' for our frontline workers. Despite this, we are glad this agreement at least included an expanded definition of eligible frontline workers who can access this ‘hero pay’ check.

“It is clear that our near $10 billion budget surplus was built off the backs of our frontline workers continuing to do the work that keeps our economy running and our communities safe. These frontline worker heroes deserve more for their critical contributions to our state and the great risk they faced going into work with an unknown and dangerous virus, including without proper PPE for months in the early stages of the pandemic. Our union will never stop fighting for all working people who work every single day to bring excellence to public services, dignity in the workplace, and opportunity and prosperity for all workers.

“At a time in which dozens of large corporations have earned billions in profit built off our labor and paid $0 in taxes, it is a slap in the face of all working people and our frontline worker heroes that they get very little in comparison to the enormous value they bring to our economy and communities."


AFSCME Council 5 is a labor union representing more than 43,000 workers across Minnesota. We advocate for excellence in services to the public, dignity in the workplace, and opportunity and prosperity for all workers.
