MADISON – Assembly Democratic Leader Peter Barca (D-Kenosha) released the following statement today on the announcement that Oscar Mayer will be closing its Madison plant, resulting in the layoffs of more than 1,000 workers:

“I am deeply saddened that yet another business is shuttering its doors in Wisconsin and my thoughts are with all the workers and families affected.

“The closure of Oscar Meyer accentuates the urgent need for action on jobs.

“I would hope that Republicans would reverse course and call for an extraordinary session to find solutions to Wisconsin’s jobs and lagging middle class wage crisis instead of calling for an extraordinary session to pad their campaign coffers by allowing more secretive money in politics, more corporate influence in our government and more opportunities for corruption. It is clear that the priorities of Wisconsin Republicans are misplaced and focused on feathering their own nests instead of the major problems facing our state.

“I am also urging WEDC to immediately discuss Oscar Meyer by adding this to our board agenda next week.
