Follow the headlines, and it’s clear that changing demographics are headed on a crash course for Minnesota’s employers, business community and the entire economy – unless we take immediate action to reform federal immigration laws. Minnesota’s workforce is growing slower while the economy tries to expand. The result is a shortage of workers of all skill levels. Here’s an opportunity to hear top-level Minnesota business leaders speak to current immigration reform and how they see it affecting their future workforces.
The Minnesota Chamber, as a member of the Minnesota Business Immigration Coalition, is pleased to co-sponsor “How Immigration Leads to Economic Growth and American Jobs:
The Perspective of Minnesota Business Leaders” – a networking breakfast June 8 at the Northland Inn in Brooklyn Park. We’re most fortunate to have Jeremy Robbins, policy adviser and special counsel in the Office of New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Partnership for a New American Economy, as moderator for the program.

America is in the middle of an important immigration debate. We need to view immigration as a tool to help us create a workforce that maximizes our productivity, grows our economy and creates American jobs. Please join us and share your stories.
