Wisconsin's Conservative Pushback Against Big Labor Continues by Brett Healy 21 Nov 2011 post a comment Share This: Last month I introduced you to the It's Working educational effort. The clip below is our second 60-second television commercial that is airing across the state of Wisconsin. Together with the Americans for Prosperity Foundation - Wisconsin, the MacIver Institute has crafted this educational effort in an attempt to rise above the heated rhetoric and engage in an informed, fact-based debate. [youtube _loV97QDdbE] As you can see on the ItsWorkingWisconsin website, the results of the recent labor and budget reforms in Wisconsin are quite impressive. We had heard some say the sky would fall, that there would be massive layoffs of state and local government workers and teachers. Some asserted that Wisconsin’s budget reform would mark the end of the state as we know it. But the sky’s still there, and Wisconsin is stronger than ever, thanks to Wisconsin’s budget reform.Wisconsin has cut its deficit and reduced the strain on local governments by giving them the tools to reduce their labor costs without massive program cuts or layoffs. We are committed to providing the facts to Wisconsin taxpayers. Every week the website highlights are more examples of how It’s Working.
