Madison – Today Assistant Assembly Democratic Leader Katrina Shankland (D-Stevens Point) issued the following statement regarding a Dane County Circuit Court judge’s ruling against the state’s so-called “Right to Work” law that was passed by Republican legislators last year:

“With research showing Wisconsin as one of the most stagnant states for middle-class growth, today’s ruling is a victory for working families. In the year since the Republican-led legislature swiftly passed and enacted so-called “Right to Work” in Wisconsin, we have seen little to no legislative action from Republicans on raising wages, growing family-supporting jobs, and rebuilding Wisconsin’s middle class.

“So-called ‘Right to Work’ has not worked for Wisconsin’s working families, and today is a victory for everyone who works hard and deserves the chance to get ahead.”
