Statement from Democratic Party of Wisconsin Executive Director on Senator Ron Johnson's Opposition to Overtime Pay

Jun 09, 2016

Democratic Party of Wisconsin Executive Director Kory Kozloski released the following statement in light of Senator Ron Johnson’s fight against overtime pay:

“The President’s overtime rule is a common sense measure that will help improve the lives of nearly 70,000 Wisconsinites, and put over 12 billion dollars in the pockets of hardworking Americans –  so it’s no surprise that Sen. Johnson is against it. Unlike Senator Johnson, most Americans don’t get $10 million golden parachutes from their companies. They are working hard just to make ends meet, and once again Sen, Johnson is dead set on making it even harder.”
