MADISON, Wis. – Americans for Prosperity-Wisconsin (AFP-WI) State Director Eric Bott issued the following statement in response to Governor Tony Evers’ plan to repeal Wisconsin’s right-to-work law:
“Wisconsin’s economy is roaring because of numerous pro-growth reforms over the last decade but the labor reforms in this budget put that growth at risk. We can’t go back to where we were, and we are ready to commit the full extent of our grassroots infrastructure to protect worker freedom and stop this outrageous attack on taxpayers and small businesses.
“Repealing right-to-work would unfairly limit worker freedom by forcing employees to join and fund a union as a condition of employment. We know right-to-work is an important consideration for businesses looking to expand or set up shop. Getting rid of right-to-work would make it harder to attract job creators to Wisconsin.
“Americans for Prosperity-Wisconsin will spare no effort to stop Governor Evers’ misguided assaults on workers and taxpayers in Wisconsin.”
