On Wednesday Gov. Scott Walker attended the annual Governor’s Small Business Summit in Eau Claire. During the event, Blogging Blue contributor Steve Carlson, who is a steering committee member of 15 NOW Northwest Wisconsin, asked Gov. Walker about living wages. Predictably, Gov. Walker refused to answer Steve’s questions about living wages.
Watch for yourselves.
According to Steve, 15 NOW Northwest Wisconsin was determined not to let Walker come to Eau Claire and talk about jobs without talking about living wages. The group is part of the larger Fight for 15, and their definition of a living wage includes $15/hour, full time hours, consistent schedules, affordable health insurance, paid sick leave and vacation time, and publicly funded child care.
