MADISON – After reviewing the “Right to Work” legislation passed by Gov. Scott Walker and legislative Republicans, the court system has determined that the law violates Wisconsin’s Constitution. Senate Democratic Leader Jennifer Shilling (D-La Crosse) released the following statement:

“Everyone knew that ‘Right to Work’ laws would drive down family wages and interfere in private business contracts. Now we also know that this special interest attack on working families and locally-owned businesses is unconstitutional. This ruling is a major victory for hardworking Wisconsin families. Rather than wasting taxpayer dollars to defend the wishes of out-of-state special interest groups, the Department of Justice should side with Wisconsin families and allow this ruling to stand.”
