On Tuesday Gov. Scott Walker said he would call a special legislative session if courts this spring do not uphold the state’s voter ID law, a law Republicans love because it will depress Democratic votes in Wisconsin. No doubt Gov. Walker wants to see voter ID enacted into law before this November’s election because it will smooth his path to re-election.
And while Gov. Walker is fixated on “fixing” his re-election changes, yet another company has announced it’s moving jobs out of Wisconsin.
Manitowoc Co. will cut about 150 jobs in Manitowoc as the company moves a production line that builds ice machines to a plant in Monterrey, Mexico, and possibly China.
The job reductions will take place over the next 21 months, the company said Tuesday, and could include about 40% of the production employees who make Indigo ice machines.
