Activists Canvass WI Neighborhoods as Unemployment Stands at All-Time Low of 2.8%
MADISON, WI – Americans for Prosperity-Wisconsin (AFP-WI) today released a new door hanger as part of its grassroots activist campaign asking Wisconsinites to thank Governor Scott Walker for enacting pro-growth reforms that have turbocharged the Badger State’s economy. The door hangers cite Wisconsin’s all-time low unemployment rate and its standing as a “Top 5” state for manufacturing jobs as proof of the success of Walker’s economic policies such as eliminating job-killing regulations and lowering the tax burden on small businesses.
You can view the door hanger HERE.
AFP-WI State Director Eric Bott made the following statement:
“Our base of over 137,000 grassroots activists continues to be impressed by Governor Walker’s bold reform agenda of lowering taxes, cutting red tape, and modernizing welfare to increase employment opportunities for all. With record low unemployment, a resurgence in manufacturing jobs, and more Wisconsinites working than ever before, the results speak for themselves. Wisconsin continues to be a model for the nation under Governor Walker’s reform-minded, pro-growth leadership. Our activists encourage him to double down on these smart policies that have made Wisconsin a great place to live, work and raise a family.”
“The unemployment rate is falling so fast we can’t keep up and as the Walker economy sets new records our door hangers risk being outdated as soon as we print them. We need to give our activists markers so they can update the door hangers by hand as they canvass to reflect the latest record low unemployment rate.”
