MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A controversial proposal in Minneapolis that would change the way workers are scheduled is getting some opposition.

A coalition of businesses and workers got together Monday to speak out against the Working Families Agenda.

They say there hasn’t been enough information about the proposal.

The proposal would force businesses to provide paid sick leave and require advance scheduling.

One of the biggest reason for opposition is because the bar and restaurant industry says flexibility is extremely important.

“It’s one of the key components of why servers become servers and stay servers,” said Tony Chesak, of the Minnesota Licensed Beverage Associations.

The group says the plan will be too costly and make scheduling a nightmare.

Supporters insist the measure is not a done deal.
