Rather than focus on creating good jobs for Minnesotans, the radically conservative Center for the American Experiment attacks those who make Minnesota work according to Minnesotans for a Fair Economy Director, Donna Cassutt.

“Today's attack on good jobs in Minnesota comes from the same forces of extreme corporate greed who crashed our economy and wiped out our home values with reckless lending and starved our schools to give tax cuts to the super-rich. Now they have come to Minnesota and want us to give up the ability to form unions in our workplaces to raise wages and have a voice on the job, Cassutt said in a press release following the Center’s release of a report on “Right-to-Work” legislation.

“The Center for the American Experiment's report has all the credibility of the Big Bad Wolf explaining that brick houses have gone out of style. Minnesotans who have been fighting for good jobs and a fair economy should regard their anti-union rhetoric with extreme skepticism at best."

In addition to supporting and advocating for a nationwide attack on workers, the Center for the American Experiment is on the record supporting tax breaks for corporations and the richest one-percent. The group is closely tied to the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) through the State Policy Network, which pushes a radical conservative agenda through state legislative bodies.  For further information: Eric S.
