Tell Governor Walker: I Stand with Wisconsin's Workers

    1. Sponsored by

      Wisconsin Jobs Now

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.

      Workers rights; It has come to pass!! Give them what they want, sign the contract. When the contract comes due we will just not HONOR IT. We will change the rules in our favor. It’s one of the number one rules in business classes. I know, it was taught to me in labor law class at WWM. Let them file a suit with the labor commission, we appoint the judges. If that won’t work we can change the law. It’s the same thing with Social Security. They spent the money, gave us an IOU. Now they tell us we are BROKE and will have to change the rules by changing the law of the land. I guess it not in their favor any more. A very wise man gave us the answer 2011 years ago honor. In short; honor your contract (Parable of the Workers in the Vineyard). It looks to me that some don’t think too much of His opinion either.

      We must get rid of the unions they support the Democratic Party. Who’s next AARP don’t they also support the Democratic Party? AARP must go they support Social Security.

      Now because they aren’t getting their way they issue an arrest warrant their fellow Legislators. It looks to me that the SS has come to Wisconsin, isn’t that what happened in the 1930s and 1940s in another country?

      Be careful Legislators you may have awaken a sleeping giant in this country. It has taken me 68 years to write a comment on anything.
