Working? It’s no excuse for not caucusing…

In the State of Minnesota, caucusing is a protected privilege, via MN Statute 202A.19:

Subd. 2.Absence from work.

Every employee who is entitled to attend a major political party precinct caucus is entitled, after giving the employer at least ten days’ written notice, to be absent from work for the purpose of attending the caucus during the time for which the caucus is scheduled without penalty or deduction from salary or wages on account of the absence other than a deduction in salary for the time of absence from employment.

Print out a copy of this statute and attach it to your letter to your employer[s] and we’ll see you on February 4th.
