President Barack Obama will visit Milwaukee to deliver remarks at the Milwaukee Area Labor Council’s Laborfest celebration. The event begins with an 11:00 a.m. parade from Zeidler Union Square Park to the Summerfest Grounds via Wisconsin Ave, Milwaukee St. and Chicago St. Laborfest celebrates the achievements of Wisconsin’s working men and women and our unions.
“Working people are excited to have President Obama at Laborfest this year to talk jobs, the economy and workers’ rights,” said Sheila Cochran, Secretary-Treasurer of the Milwaukee Area Labor Council. “President Obama stands with workers fighting to raise the minimum wage, has enacted policies to combat income inequality and supports collective bargaining rights for public and private sector workers. We proudly welcome President Obama to Milwaukee and look forward to celebrating working people together this Labor Day.”
