One Wisconsin Now Statements on Labor Day, Middle Class Attacks

While Wall Street, Banks, Corporations Own Gov. Walker, Middle Class Families Stand United

MADISON, Wis. — One Wisconsin Now Executive Director Scot Ross released the following statements in celebration of Labor Day and the continuing fight by Wisconsin workers and the middle class against the corporate takeover of state government happening as a result of the capitulation and policy changes of Gov. Scott Walker and the Republican-controlled legislature.

“While working people and the middle class of Wisconsin suffer, Gov. Scott Walker has used our treasury to enrich corporations and the wealthy. Gov. Walker has divided our tax dollars amongst his biggest corporate donors, but he has also united the middle class and working people of Wisconsin as never before in an effort to stop his disastrous agenda. Remember that every dime Gov. Walker gives to Wall Street is a dime we lose from our schools, our health care and our support for those in need. We celebrate Monday the many contributions of organized labor and working men and women to our nation, but with an eye to a brighter day when we remove Gov. Walker from office and restore decency, competence and humanity to the state’s top office.”
