Milwaukee – Yesterday, Alex Lasry’s campaign for U.S. Senate released a new “Workers’ Bill of Rights,” a plan dedicated to protecting the rights of workers and unions across Wisconsin that has been endorsed by leaders across the state.

Lasry’s plan calls for guaranteeing all workers the right to organize, establishing a $15 federal minimum wage, guaranteeing paid leave to all workers, and outlawing right-to-work laws, among other policy changes.

“For far too long, our workers have been punished due to greedy companies prioritizing profits over people, and Wisconsinites have had enough,” said Alex Lasry. “I’ve always been a strong advocate for workers’ rights and unions–ensuring that all 10,000 construction jobs created by building Fiserv Forum and the resulting jobs in the arena were filled with Wisconsin union labor.”

Alex Lasry releases ‘Workers’ Bill of Rights’

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel// Bill Glauber

Reaffirming his strong support for unions, Alex Lasry released a “Workers’ Bill of Rights” as he pushed for a $15 an hour federal minimum wage, guaranteed paid leave to all workers and a federal ban on so-called “right to work laws.”

Earlier in the campaign, Lasry released a pro-union blueprint to raise wages.”For far too long, our workers have been punished due to greedy companies prioritizing profits over people,” Lasry said in a statement.

Lasry’s 11-point plan included a call to pay a fair wage to workers in childcare, home health care and long-term care, classifying most gig workers as employees to allow them to join a union and boosting civil fines for violations of federal labor law during union campaigns.

Lasry said he would push at the federal level to outlaw “right-to-work” laws that have been implemented in 28 states, including Wisconsin, which passed the measure in 2015.

Ron Johnson Won’t Protect Wisconsin From Gun Violence, But I Will

Milwaukee Courier// Alex Lasry

It’s been devastating to see the news of the shocking number of mass shootings taking place across the country. Almost every day we see more and more people dying because of senseless, preventable acts of gun violence. From the shooting in downtown Milwaukee, to the terrible tragedy in Uvalde, and most recent shootings in Tulsa and Racine, we’re seeing one of our nation’s biggest epidemics on full display, and Ron Johnson refuses to do anything about it.

After accepting over $1.2 million and an ‘A rating’ from the National Rifle Association, Ron Johnson is compromised. It’s clear that he will do nothing to protect our children and our communities, and will actively oppose any efforts to stiffen current gun laws.
