MADISON – Senate Democratic Leader Jennifer Shilling (D-La Crosse) released the folowing statement regarding the passing of longtime labor leader Marty Beil:

“Marty was a tireless advocate for Wisconsin’s working families and a fearless defender of workplace freedom. He understood the value of a hard day’s work and was never afraid to take on the powerful out-of-state corporations and special interests who tried to undermine workers’ rights. His tenacity and unwavering dedication to Wisconsin’s hardworking families will be sorely missed – but not forgotten.”
