A lot of people won’t be getting a hero pay check from the state. Minnesota’s Department of Labor yesterday denied nearly 215 thousand applications for checks for people who worked during the worst of the coronavirus. The state says most of the rejected requests were because people didn’t fill-out the forms properly, but people were also told ‘No’ because they maxed-out their unemployment benefits or simply didn’t qualify. Over 985 thousand people will be getting a check. The Department of Labor says those checks should be about 500 dollars.
