Missed out on your chance to see former half-term Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin Wednesday in Minneapolis? Wondering what to do with your day? The Minnesota AFL-CIO has got you covered.
The federation of trade unions is organizing a “Rally for Jobs and Tax Fairness” at noon in the State Capitol rotunda, two hours before U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., will be using the Minneapolis Convention Center to host a rally and fundraiser with Palin.
The rally and a follow-up session of lobbying state lawmakers is part of the MN AFL-CIO’s Working Families Day at the Capitol and will feature National AFL-CIO Secretary/Treasurer Liz Shuler.
If you were looking to go to the Bachmann/Palin rally, you can still get tickets from the Republican Party of Minnesota here, but you’ll have to get them from the party HQ before 9 p.m. tonight.
The AFL-CIO backed a business tax cuts bill the DFL-controlled Legislature passed before its spring break recess, but opposed the cuts contained in a mini-budget bill lawmakers sent to Gov. Tim Pawlenty on the same day.
