Tony Evers Plan for Wisconsin Workers


It’s no secret Scott Walker has made his career by attacking Wisconsin’s workers time and time again.  This ends in an Evers Administration.  It’s time we started treating all Wisconsin workers – including our public employees – with respect and compassion.  

Tony is committed to filling his appointments with people who actually have expertise and knowledge in their respective fields, not simply filling government with more political hacks who will rubberstamp his policies.  We must give our workers a seat at the table – listening to their concerns and hearing their ideas.  We can do this on day one and don’t need to pass a bill to treat Wisconsinites with the dignity they deserve. 

Tony opposes Act 10, Right-to-Work and changes made by the GOP to Wisconsin’s prevailing wage laws.  He also would support repealing legislation that eliminates the opportunity for local communities to pass living wages and other pro-worker protection policies.


In 2014, voters in 13 Wisconsin counties and cities had the opportunity to vote on a referendum asking lawmakers to raise the minimum wage.  Every one of the referendums passed including in places like Wood County, where Scott Walker won with 57% of the vote and the minimum wage referendum passing with 56% of the vote.

Tony supports raising the minimum wage to $15/hour and indexing to inflation.  However, like Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Tony also believes that this should be phased in over multiple years.
