MADISON – Today Assembly Democratic Leader Peter Barca (D-Kenosha) released the following statement on Republican efforts to repeal the state’s successful prevailing wage system:

“Once again, the opinion of more than 400 businesses means nothing to the 41 Republicans who have signed on to this proposal.

“Repealing prevailing wage would be another huge hit against the middle class and small businesses in Wisconsin. Over the last decade, Wisconsin has been the worst state in the nation for the middle class.

“Wisconsin’s road and bridge construction workers are some of the most productive in the nation – with low costs per mile and excellent training. The bottom line is that Wisconsin has a system that works and Republicans want to dismantle it knowing that it will drive down wages.”
