$10.10 an Hour - Raise Wisconsin's Minimum Wage!

GOAL: 3,250 signatures

Early in January, State Representative Cory Mason, Senator Robert Wirch, Senator Nikiya Harris, and Representative Eric Genrich introduced legislation to raise the state's minimum wage to $10.10 an hour, mirroring federal legislation in Congress. Nearly 600,000 Wisconsinites would benefit from a raise in the minimum wage. If enacted, Wisconsin’s minimum wage would immediately increase to $8.20 per hour and reach $10.10 per hour two years later.

Time to get rid of Walker what he is costing this state will come to surface in the future.

Close Gov. Walker’s Failed Jobs Agency

GOAL: 1,000 signatures

In a new report released by Citizen Action of Wisconsin, Governor Walker's Wisc Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) is projecting job creation in Republicans at a much higher rate than Democratic districts!

  • GOP Assembly districts have close to twice as many jobs projected by WEDC as Democratic districts.
  • Adjusting for underlying districts, Republican Senate districts have more than twice as many jobs impacted than Democratic districts.

This is an outrageous betrayal of the tens of thousands of Wisconsinites struggling to find work.  Walker’s experiment with a privatized job agency that lacks any semblance of accountability for the use of public money is an embarrassing failure.  Wisconsin families should not have to wait any longer for effective and accountable jobs programs.   

Join Our Fight to replace Walker’s disgraced jobs agency, and create a publicly accountable and transparent state agency to focus on desperately needed economic development and job creation.
