Minnesota’s state government shutdown that started July 1 will have economic ripples statewide and the only thing that’s certain is that the longer it goes, the wider they’ll spread.
The shutdown means no work for 22,000 state employees who will be reluctant to make discretionary purchases. And those employees are scattered in communities throughout the state.
We want to know how you have been affected by a possible shutdown. Are you one of the people out of a job and a paycheck or is there a specific state service that is now gone? Send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or feel free to leave a comment below.
