Jobs Hearings To Begin Monday

From my mailbox, a message from the Wisconsin AFL-CIO:
The first of several jobs hearings will take place at the Washington Park Senior Center in Milwaukee on Monday, October 17 at 7:00 pm. The jobs hearing will give citizens a chance to speak directly with their legislators about the need for quality, family-sustaining jobs in the area.

The jobs crisis is the number one threat to our economy and a concern of many Wisconsinites. Although Gov. Walker promised to create 250,000 new jobs for Wisconsin, it is clear that continuous tax breaks for the super rich have not helped the people of Wisconsin. The lack of family-supporting jobs is the priority issue that must be addressed immediately by policymakers.

Additional Jobs Hearing will be held in La Crosse, Oshkosh and Racine on October 24.

As of this date, Friday, October 14, lawmakers confirmed to attend include Sen. Tim Carpenter, Sen. Spencer Coggs, Sen. Chris Larson, Rep. Sandy Pasch, Rep. Christine Sinicki, Rep. Barbara Toles and Rep. JoCasta Zamarripa.
Noticeable by their absent are elected state legislators State Senators Alberta Darling, Leah Vukmir and Mary Lazich.

But we already knew that the Republicans have never been interested in actually creating jobs, only in trying to keep theirs by pandering to the well-moneyed special interests who bought their seats for them.


  1. And unlike Walker's propaganda sessions, it doesn't cost $50 to get in, either.

  2. Yep. Jobs? Not on Rep Vos's agenda. But, we know that pushing school vouchers to fund Catholic religious madrassas (at taxpayer expense) IS on Rep Vos's is pushing his anti-abortion agenda. WARNING to women of Wisconsin...Rep Robin Vos is NOT Pro-Choice. He's tightly connected with WisRTL, which is currently under a grand jury investigation.
