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.

SIGN our petition urging Walker to act on the minimum wage:
GOAL: 1,000 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.
