The Minnesota Legislature is considering a multi-million dollar ad campaign to gain workers from out of state. The program would cost four-point-five-million dollars and promote Join-Us-MN-dot-com. State officials say the website attracting employees is currently underfunded for advertising. A similar plan has been used by Wisconsin to lure workers from Chicago to move north. Minnesota’s unemployment rate is currently the lowest in over 20 years.
