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.2,491 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 and the state legislature to act on the minimum wage.

Join Our Campaign to replace Walker’s disgraced Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) jobs agency, and create a publicly accountable and transparent state agency to focus on desperately needed job creation.
After the release of yet another devastating state audit showing that the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) has failed to document that companies receiving grants, tax credits, and loans are actually creating jobs, Governor Walker abruptly announced that he is pulling the plug on his controversial plan to merge the troubled agency with the Wisconsin Housing and Economic Development Authority (WHEDA).
While the cancellation of the proposed merger is welcome news for economic opportunity advocates, it fails to address the fundamental problem. 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 without real accountability is one of the worst ideas in modern Wisconsin legislative history.
