MADISON — Today, Americans for Prosperity Wisconsin is announcing a new ad buy in support of prevailing wage repeal. The radio buy is in the Milwaukee and Green Bay media markets. This effort is a continuation of prior work to educate the public on the positive effects of repealing Prevailing Wage.

Eric Bott, state director of Americans for Prosperity Wisconsin, said the following in response:

“Each Day we come one step closer to saving the state $300 million a year. Small businesses are the backbone of Wisconsin’s economy, helping thousands of Wisconsinites achieve their piece of the American dream. Repealing prevailing wage will remove an impediment to success for many small business owners and employees, while saving state taxpayers hundred of millions of dollars.”

Script: “Together”

“Small businesses, they are the heart and soul of Wisconsin’s economy,

providing jobs, helping many achieve their dream.

Unfortunately, Wisconsin isn’t doing everything it can to help small business stay afloat.

But together we have the power to change it by repealing the prevailing wage requirement.

Prevailing wage may sound nice, but it just doesn’t work, it’s outdated, unnecessary and stops small business from being able to compete.

Repealing the prevailing wage means creating jobs for Wisconsin workers and saving taxpayers $300 million a year.

But an important bill to repeal it might not get a vote.

Call Robin Vos at 608.266.3387; tell him to repeal the prevailing wage.

Ten states have already repealed it, now it’s Wisconsin’s turn to do the same.

That’s 608.266.3387.

One thought on “Americans for Prosperity Wisconsin Unveils New Ad Buy in Support of Prevailing Wage Repeal”

  1. David says:

    This is another tactic in the Republican race to the bottom and keeping the boot into the back of working people. It saves nothing in tax dollars as people make less money, have less to spend on small businesses in their communities, etc. It is a small job business killer. Small business creates the majority of jobs. Americans for Prosperity is nothing but a front group and money laundering organization for the Koch Brothers. So follow the money.

    This is also another tactic to bring in outside of state unskilled labor and poor quality construction. When the building is crumbling and profits removed from the community, the offenders are long gone and taxpayers are left holding the bag of damage.

    It is ironic how the tactic also goes against the interests of many GOP type supporters – white male construction workers. Voting against their own interests.
