Albert Lea, Minn.- After the midterm election, new leaders will be governing Minnesota. Whomever will take the lead will pass policies that will affect you.
That's why the Minnesota Chamber of Commerce is doing a statewide policy tour to get advice on what they should bring to the Legislative Session in January.
Employees with the Chamber stopped in Albert Lea to talk to employers about their thoughts.
The biggest topic was hiring and retaining workers.
It's a concern for people like Steve Tufte. He manages a contract manufacturing company and says it's difficult to even find people to work there.
“We have probably continually number of positions open right now and it seems like you hire some people they don't seem to fit the position and then you try to hire some more...so it's just like it's an ongoing revolving door,” said Tufte.
The Chamber will take the feedback and work on policies that they will take to the Legislature.
Their Next Stop will be in Minnetonka On October 25th.
