Governor Walz is moving forward with a bill to replenish Minnesota’s unemployment insurance fund and to provide frontline workers with bonuses. Walz signed the package yesterday that will replace nearly two-and-three-quarter billion dollars drained from the unemployment insurance fund due to job loss claims from the impact of the pandemic. Officials say around 130-thousand businesses in the state will also receive unemployment insurance tax relief through the bill. The law will also include 750-dollar bonuses for eligible workers in the health care, child care, school, food service, public transit, long-term care, building service, emergency response, retail, and manufacturing sectors.
