Reader's View: Don’t gripe about your checks, frontline workers

A lot of people never got anything.

Regarding the Feb. 1 letter, “Hero pay in Minnesota ‘a slap in the face ’,” I say: Be thankful for what you received. A lot of people never got anything. Also, a lot of people went to their jobs and didn’t expect a pat on the back or a bonus.

Our government has to stop giving all this money away that we don’t have. It needs to stop borrowing and printing more money. The debt is too large now.

Readers' View and Local Views

Letters are limited to 300 words, must be the original work of the author and must be exclusive to the News Tribune. Letters are edited for style, space, accuracy and civility.

Letter writers are limited to one published submission every 30 days.

With rare exceptions, the News Tribune does not publish poetry; letters that are anonymous, libelous or attack other writers; consumer-complaint letters; thank-you letters; or letters generated by political or special-interest campaigns.

We will consider exclusive Local View columns of 600 words or fewer. Authors should possess unique insights, and their commentaries should demonstrate greater knowledge of their subject than letters.
