Tell Governor Walker: I Stand with Wisconsin's Workers

The fight for workers’ rights in Wisconsin will determine the future for working families in America. 

Some of the largest businesses and billionaires are behind the scenes, bankrolling the efforts of politicians like Wisconsin's Governor Scott Walker, and trying to make their extreme vision for America become reality.

Special interests like the Koch Brothers are determined to kill good jobs in Wisconsin and throughout the country. They want tax breaks for corporations and the wealthy, and they already got them from Governor Walker.

Now they want to make average working families pay for these tax breaks through layoffs and by lowering wages and benefits to the point where they can’t support a family.

They want to:

-Kill good jobs in America. Koch Industries has been laying off workers throughout the country and shipping our jobs overseas. The Koch Brothers just eliminated 158 jobs at one of their Green Bay plants – yet, last year they awarded themselves $11 billion in bonuses.

-Turn good jobs that have a future into low-paying jobs with no benefits and no future. The Koch brothers run their much of their Wisconsin facilities with temporary workers.

We have a different vision for America and for hardworking families. We believe that everyone who works hard should have a good job.

Now that corporate profits are at an all-time high, businesses should be creating jobs and raising wages – not bankrolling their extreme agenda for America.

Sign our petition and let the Governor Walker know our vision for America – one that includes hardworking, middle class families – will win this fight in the end.

Letter to
Wisconsin Governor
I stand with Wisconsin Jobs Now and the Wisconsin workers who are fighting to protect their rights -- and the rights of workers across the country -- to organize.

Special interests like the Koch Brothers have pushed for tax breaks the corporations and the wealthy, and they've gotten them.

Now they want to make average working families pay for those tax breaks through layoffs and by lowering wages and benefits to the point where they can’t even support a family. Their first step? To gut the only organized power that working people have: labor unions.

Wisconsin Jobs Now has a different vision for America and for hardworking families. We believe that everyone who works hard should have a good job.

Now that corporate profits are at an all-time high, businesses should be creating jobs and raising wages – not bankrolling their extreme agenda for America.

I'll continue to stand with Wisconsin's workers fighting to ensure our vision for America – one that includes hardworking, middle class families – will win this fight in the end.
