Johnson Supports Outsourcing Wisconsin Jobs to China, Takes Government Health Care to Create Jobs for Prisoners, Launches Desperate Attack on Author of Buy American Improvement Act
MADISON—Ron Johnson’s poll numbers are moving in the wrong direction because he supports unfair trade deals that have shipped more than 64,000Wisconsin jobs to other countries. On Friday, the media revealed that Johnson has been using prison workers, with government-paid health insurance, at his company for more than a decade. Over 1,700 Oshkosh families have lost their jobs to the trade deals Johnson supports. The Economic Policy Institute also reported that 59,100 Wisconsin jobs were lost due to our trade deficit with China between 2001 and 2007 alone.
