The current state and trajectory of the Minnesota economy
The world is dealing with a pandemic and no known end in sight. What does this mean for the economy? Ron Wirtz will discuss the current state and trajectory of the Minnesota economy, with particular focus on the role and importance of labor force in future economic growth.
