Carl Hosterman signed Minimum Wage Petition 2014-01-24 06:41:37 -0600If your going to make it a living wage it should be a minimum of $15.00 an hour and benefits.2,430 signatures
We know that thousands of Wisconsin workers cannot make it on $7.25.We also know that when workers can’t afford the basics, the whole economy slows down and everyone loses.
It’s just economic common-sense: Putting more money into the hands of working people ensures they have more to spend on goods and services, increasing demand in our economy and spurring job growth.
SIGN our petition urging Walker to act on the minimum wage:
Carl Hosterman signed Close WEDC Petition 2013-10-25 06:30:00 -0500Time to get rid of Walker what he is costing this state will come to surface in the future.1,051 signatures
Join Our Campaign 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.
Democrats in the Legislature should go beyond critiquing the proposed merger of the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) with the Wisconsin Economic Development Authority (WEDA) and provide an alternative approach for job creation.
WEDC is not just badly mismanaged, it is a flawed model. The notion that our scarce job creation resources should be doled out to business with less accountability is one of the worst ideas generated by the Walker Administration, which is really saying something. We at Citizen Action of Wisconsin have been saying that the whole model is flawed since it was first proposed in early 2011, and the short history of the troubled agency bears us out.
