MADISON – Today, Legislative Republicans introduced numerous bills that fall flat in their goal of fixing Wisconsin’s workforce challenges. In response, Rep. Greta Neubauer (D-Racine) released the following statement:
“Today’s GOP package fails to address the real challenges Wisconsin’s workforce faces. Wisconsin’s unemployment rate is at a historic low, but instead of working to grow our workforce, Legislative Republicans are doubling down on efforts to undermine Wisconsin’s unemployment system and jeopardize the critical assistance that keeps individuals and families afloat.
“Rather than focusing on programs that would actually help Wisconsinites, like Governor Evers’ Workforce Solutions Initiative, or increasing access to quality, affordable childcare, Republicans are wasting time on politically-driven legislation. If GOP leadership were serious about helping people to find meaningful employment, they would work with Governor Evers and Legislative Democrats to address the realities that people are facing in Wisconsin.”
