“Congratulations to Governor Tony Evers, Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes, Attorney General Josh Kaul and Treasurer Sarah Godlewski,” said Wisconsin State AFL-CIO President Stephanie Bloomingdale. “We look forward to working with the Evers Administration to lift up working people by raising wages, restoring worker rights, strengthening our public schools, investing in roads, bridges, and infrastructure, and protecting affordable health care for all.”

“Over the next 4 years, Gov. Evers will get to work rebuilding Wisconsin’s middle class,” continued Bloomingdale. “The best way to strengthen our middle class is to strengthen the voice of working people by restoring collective bargaining rights in all sectors of our economy to level the playing field and bring balance to our economy for working families. Wisconsin workers look forward to a new government that puts forth positive policy proposals to create good jobs and strengthen our middle class.”
