Petition: Stop RTW in Wisconsin
Brothers and Sisters,
There’s a shady new front group in town, gearing up to attack workers and Wisconsin’s middle class. On December 1, a group with ties to the Koch Brothers launched an organization called “Wisconsin Right to Work” to “aggressively promote” anti-worker policies in the state legislature. On December 2, Rep. Chris Kapenga (R-Delafield) publicly promised to introduce an anti-worker Right to Work bill during the 2015–2016 legislative session. On December 4, Sen. Scott Fitzgerald (R-Juneau) said the Senate would lead on Right to Work and take it up in just a matter of weeks.
Sign the petition today: Click here to stand firm against Right to Work in Wisconsin. This bill is a scheme by out-of-state special interests to lower our wages and hurt our entire middle class.
Right to Work isn’t what it seems. It is a complicated and controversial anti-worker bill brought to you by out-of-state special interests that want to drive down wages and line their own pockets.
Here are the Facts
- RTW doesn’t create jobs. Passing RTW won’t create even one job in Wisconsin. RTW is a power grab by out-of-state special interests who want to eliminate unions and stack the deck even more in their favor, all at the expense of the middle class.
- RTW is an attack on the middle class. These anti-worker Right To Work laws just force all working families to work harder for lower pay and less benefits, whether they’re in a union or not. The average worker makes about $5,000 less and pensions are lower and less secure in Right to Work states. If we don’t stop these attacks, the middle class will continue to shrink.
- All working people deserve real freedom, not laws like these. Freedom is about being able to earn a living wage, balance life with work and come home safe after a day’s work. Freedom is the ability to speak out about workplace conditions without fear of retaliation. This is what we need to work toward, not laws like these.
Now that you have the facts, click here to sign the petition to stop attacks on Wisconsin workers and our freedom to earn a decent wage.
The truth is Right to Work benefits the people at the top while hurting the rest of us. Don’t be fooled — when powerful special interests win, it’s people who work for a living and the middle class that loses.
