Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton this afternoon had some of his strongest language yet regarding public employees and their labor unions.
He spoke for about 8 minutes at the AFL-CIO rally in the Capitol rotunda, called in support of embattled public employee unions in Wisconsin. Referring to anti-union measures afoot in Minnesota’s legislature, Dayton said “drastic, extreme measures won’t become law here, because I’m here.”
