EAU CLAIRE – Dana Wachs challenged Gov. Scott Walker’s record on the economy and jobs in advance of Walker’s State of the State address scheduled for Wednesday, January 24:
“For the last seven years, we’ve listened while Gov. Walker boasted about his impact on Wisconsin’s economy. I’ve got news for Gov. Walker: we remember the last seven years and we are not going to forget how his policies hurt Wisconsin workers. Walker repealed prevailing wage, driving down wages for workers. He pushed through Act 10, taking collective bargaining rights away from workers. Frankly, Scott Walker is the worst governor for Wisconsin workers in our state’s history.
“It’s time we start respecting workers in Wisconsin again. It’s time we invest in their training and opportunities. We can build a better Wisconsin and that starts with kicking Gov. Walker out of office.”
Wachs for Wisconsin launched a microsite this week highlighting Gov. Walker’s record on healthcare and other topics. New information will be added each day leading up to Walker’s State of the State address on Wednesday, January 24. Visit the site here.
