MADISON, Wis. – Today, Americans for Prosperity Wisconsin is announcing the next steps in their continuing grassroots effort to repeal the state’s outdated prevailing wage laws. AFP Wisconsin, with the help of its 125,000 in-state activists, will be launching a statewide patch-through calling campaign educating citizens  on the benefits of prevailing wage repeal and encouraging them to contact their legislators. The initiative will coincide with the new website,, and statewide online advertising campaign announced last week.

Americans for Prosperity Wisconsin State Director David Fladeboe had the following to say:

“We cannot step back from the fight for a more prosperous Wisconsin. By engaging our network of 125,000 in-state activists, we are sending the message that the state is hungry for more common sense reforms, like repealing the state’s outdated prevailing wage law.

Government should not be in the business of setting wages, especially when it forces schools and local communities to pay up to 45% more for labor. That’s money that could go back to students, taxpayers, or other critical projects. Repealing this onerous regulation is our logical next step and we’ll be engaging our network of activists to help ensure this important legislation becomes a reality.”
