Worker Displacement Study Commission
Active dates:July, 1990 - 1991
Function: The commission shall study and make legislative recommendations regarding worker displacement caused by corporate takeovers, buy outs, and other similar business ownership transfers and publicly funded economic development. The commission shall complete the study and report its recommendations to the legislature before February 1, 1991.
In 1988-89, Governor Perpich established a bi-partisan commission to review and make recommendations on the general question of worker dislocation. The missions of the two groups are somewhat different, however the previous Commission's report is to be regarded as the foundation for the Worker Displacement Study Commission report. The primary distinction between the two efforts is that the first was fairly broad in scope, and the second is more narrowly focused on dislocation associated with changes in corporate ownership and the effects caused by publicly funded economic development.
Chair: Paul W. Goldberg, Commissioner of the Minnesota Bureau of Mediation Services
