Should Walz be paid for his job search?

December 27, 2018

Post Bulletin routinely publishes a list of bills before Congress and how our state senators/representatives voted. This past week, Mr. Walz did not vote on the bills before the Senate. This seems to be the norm for Mr. Walz as he missed more votes than he was present for while he was campaigning for governor. May the taxpayers assume Mr. Walz is NOT being paid to represent Minnesota? Of course, Mr. Walz is not the only person to campaign for a public office while holding another. Why don’t IBM, Mayo, General Mills, etc. allow employees to go job hunting while being paid to do a job they are not present for? What a grand country America is to allow pay for no work while the person seeks another position.
