Workers' compensation is a job killer. Eight years of Pawlenty's "it's fixed" attitude along with Steve Sviggem leading Labor and Industry (shake of dice to get that job) have left work comp in the scrap heap. Call the 800 number and it'll hang up on you. There are significant fees for some unknown surcharge (not a tax, of course). Add that to the highest rates (triple and double that of neighboring states). It's not the taxes. It's work comp, which ought to be a rider on health insurance policies.
