Weekly Democratic Address: Support our Workers by Investing in Education and Job Training

Posted 15:28PM on February 02 2012 by Rep. Fred Clark | User Comments (1) Categories: Recall HQ, Scott Walker | Tags: Recall scott walker, Rep. fred clark, Scott walker, Weekly democratic address

As students return for the start of second semester college classes in Wisconsin, they are already experiencing the effects of Gov. Walker’s damaging cuts to our universities and technical colleges. College students and their families are right to question why it makes sense to slash education budgets while spending lavishly on special interests and wealthy corporations.

Governor Walker’s talk about job training rings very hollow after he made more than $70 million in cuts to job training programs through our technical colleges. Any economist will tell you that in a time of economic turmoil and high unemployment, investing in job training is more important than ever. The governor’s decision could not have been worse timing for thousands of displaced Wisconsin workers.

Democratic Response to Walker's State of the State Address

Posted 20:57PM on January 25 2012 by Peter Barca | User Comments (8) Tags: Peter barca, Recall scott walker, Scott walker, State of the state

Hello, I’m Assembly Minority Leader Peter Barca with the Democratic response to Gov. Walker’s State of the State Address. 

This past year, the state of our state under Gov. Walker and Republican leaders has declined dramatically. Our state, previously recognized nationally as a leader in public education, healthcare and good government, is now polarized and broken. 

We are now among the top in the nation for damaging cuts to public education and our university system. And we are the only state in the entire country that has lost jobs every month for the past six months.
