Four thousand fewer jobs, but Minnesota unemployment rate drops 15.5.2014 MinnPost
The Business Journal's Jim Hammerand reports Minnesota lost 4,200 jobs in April, though unemployment fell a tenth of a point to 4.7 percent. Construction and business services took the brunt of the losses, while manufacturing and government were up. Overall, the state has gained nearly 42,000 jobs in the past year. At least mortgage delinquencies are down, the Strib's Jim Buchta notes . Minnesota's tardy rate is the nation's 44th-lowest (that's good). One in 30 mortgages are late. The rate excludes foreclosures, whose rate is also falling. MPR's Tim Pugmire updates the big bonding-bill holdup: that $70 million southwest Minnesota water-treatment project. DFLers in control of the legislature only funded it to $22 million, setting off GOP protest howls. A new deal could work a la the Mayo expansion — state funds and local sales or property taxes. Strib business columnist  Lee Schafer gives Target exec Jeff Jones a warm if not wet kiss  for his response to that Gawker-posted complaint from an employee. ...

St. Cloud Mayor Kleis apologizes for the city's past racial problems 21.1.2014 MinnPost
St. Cloud Mayor Dave Kleis apologized Monday for the city's history of racial intolerance. At a Martin Luther King Jr. Day event, Kleis said the city must take responsibility for racial discrimination in the past, even as it celebrates the accomplishments it has made, said the St. Cloud Times. Positive changes have occurred, other speakers noted, with three black men now holding top civic positions: St. Cloud Police Chief Blair Anderson, Metro Bus Executive Director Ryan Daniel and St. Cloud school district Superintendent Willie L. Jett II. Speakers at the event at St. Cloud State University said such improvements mean the city can no longer be dismissively called "White Cloud," the paper said. The Rev. James Alberts II of Higher Ground Church said he's seen "monumental change" over the years, but that the city now needs to focus on fair housing, education, jobs and transportation. “We are big enough to make a difference and small enough to make this work,” Alberts said. ...

More evidence suggests Minnesota manufacturing is on the mend 12.12.2013 MinnPost
AGCO created a video touting its new tractor assembly operation in Jackson, Minn. Upbeat reports from the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED) continue to show manufacturing is starting to recover in Minnesota while our state unemployment rate continues to fall . Lee Egerstrom As city officials in Jackson, Minn., will tell you, this holds promise for Minnesota’s economy going forward. “Out here, our employment problem is where to find workers,” said Jennifer Bromeland, Jackson’s city administrator. There are pockets of improvement like Jackson stretching to the Canadian border and along the I-90 corridor to Winona, but there isn't a universal statewide manufacturing comeback, yet. DEED announced in November that 31 businesses statewide revealed third-quarter plans to expand new or existing plants in Minnesota, creating 1,500 new jobs. Of these expansions, 13 are for businesses that federal statisticians call “manufacturing” but don’t include ...
