Representative Lisa Subeck Statement on So-Called “Right to Work”
“Today’s announcement that Republicans plan to move forward with fast-tracked “Right to Work” legislation is an insult to every working Wisconsinite.
With no bill yet introduced, Republicans hope to keep the public in the dark as they quickly work to pass a bill and have it signed by the governor. The results of so-called “Right to Work” laws are clear.
In states with these laws in place, wages are lower; poverty rates are higher; and the numbers of jobs with health insurance is reduced.
At a time when we should be focused on restoring economic opportunities and raising wages, legislative Republicans have chosen to move Wisconsin in the wrong direction.”
