According to Minnesota Democrats Exposed, Senate candidate and not-so-funny funny-man Al Franken has to pay a fine for not paying for worker’s comp. It’s ironic, since he’s been courting unions with the claim that he wants to increase workplace safety.
Franken had time to resolve this matter before the judgement was filed, as on August 8, 2006, Alan Franken Inc was issued a “Final Notice” from the State of New York Workers’ Compensation Board for “Failure to Carry Workers’ Comp InsÂ 6/29/2002-03/28/2005.”
Public records indicate that no payment was made.
Granted, the employees of Al Franken Inc. must not wear hardhats, but I think they’re entitled to company-provided earplugs.
