Close Gov. Walker’s Discredited Jobs Agency

 

Join our campaign to replace Walker’s discredited jobs agency, the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) and create a publicly accountable and transparent state agency to focus on job creation.

What is striking about WEDC is the lack of any comprehensive strategy to address the decline in family supporting jobs. This is no accident, it is fundamental to the whole concept of spinning off the state’s job creation agency so it can hand out corporate subsidies more “efficiently.”

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.

    Walker’s jobs agency (WEDC) continues to send public dollars to companies that outsource jobs! Say no more!

    The lack of data alone is enough to make this boondoggle questionable as a taxpayer-funded operation. The fact that the little data that does exist shows it IS NOT working makes it even more obvious that it should be shuttered.

    Depending upon one’s values line up, WEDC has been either a huge success (a lot of money was handed out to Walker’s supporters in the early days, disappearing into the ether with neither oversight nor accountability), or a huge and ugly stain on our state’s reputation (replete with shady, back-room deals, the extent of which we may never know). I fall into the latter camp, and believe that we need to dump this travesty, once and for all.

    Although I’ve been told that the concept of WEDC was viable, it’s been misused to favor Walker friends, contributors, taxpayers have footed the bill for misplaced, misused funds,

    few jobs have been created, or kept in WI.

    I believe it’s a criminal group and should be charged under the RICO Act.

    A huge waste of taxpayer money and nothing but cronyism for Walker’s supporters. Not only should it be disbanded, but investigated for corruption

    Anytime GOP/TP create a public/private entity, you know who pays the bills and who takes the profit. Should have kept the Dept of Commerce as state agency.
