The first of several jobs hearings will take place at the Washington Park Senior Center, 4420 W. Vliet Street, in Milwaukee on Monday, October 17 at 7:00 pm. The jobs hearing will give citizens a chance to speak directly with their legislators about the need for quality, family-sustaining jobs in the area.
The jobs crisis is the number one threat to our economy and a concern of many Wisconsinites. Although Gov. Walker promised to create 250,000 new jobs for Wisconsin, it is clear that continuous tax breaks for the super rich have not helped the people of Wisconsin. The lack of family-supporting jobs is the priority issue that must be addressed immediately by policymakers.
Additional Jobs Hearing will be held in La Crosse, Oshkosh and Racine on October 24.
As of Oct. 16, lawmakers confirmed to attend include Sen. Tim Carpenter, Sen. Spencer Coggs, Sen. Chris Larson, Rep. Sandy Pasch, Rep. Christine Sinicki, Rep. Barbara Toles and Rep. JoCasta Zamarripa.
