Economic support systems for middle income and working class families in Wisconsin have decreased or disappeared.
A new detailed research document provides a summary of some of the major losses for working families at this point in the Walker administration. The document can be viewed here or by visiting www.wisaflcio.org.
"Losses to Working Families under Gov. Walker" highlights the effect of Gov. Walker’s policies including, but not limited to, the loss of family-sustaining jobs, loss of worker’s fundamental freedoms, loss of employment protections and benefits, the transfer of wealth to the 1%, loss of quality public education, increased taxes on low-income Wisconsinites, loss of health care coverage, loss of citizen access to the courts and the loss of honest, clean and open government.
This research clearly and systematically details how the public policies promoted by the Walker administration represent a radical departure from the Wisconsin values and traditions we know. We encourage you to share it with your friends, family and co-workers.
Plain and simple working people have been cast aside since Gov. Walker has taken office. Gov. Walker cares more about pleasing his out-of-state corporate campaign funders than about doing right by Wisconsin. We need to change course, turn our state around and start putting the 99% first.
