Rep. Brostoff: Statement on the Senate Passage of Right to Exploit
"I am disappointed in the Republican Senators who voted in favor of this attack on the middle class."
MADISON – Representative Jonathan Brostoff (D-Milwaukee) issued a statement today in response to the Senate passing SB 44.
“I am disappointed in the Republican Senators who voted in favor of this attack on the middle class. They bent to pressure from the Koch Brothers and ALEC with this shameless distraction from the budget disaster they created.
This legislation has nothing to do with creating jobs. Numerous studies show Right to Exploit does not make a state more competitive despite leading to lower wages. Between 2013 and 2014 Wisconsin employers created 10,000 new manufacturing jobs, more than 21 of the 24 Right to Exploit states, Wisconsin is ranked 5th in the nation for manufacturing job growth.
For the second time in four years the Koch Brothers and ALEC are making history in Wisconsin by attacking the rights of Wisconsin workers. Walker is running for the Republican presidential primary, but my Democratic colleagues and I are still here for Wisconsin and we will fight this when it comes to our chamber.”
