New Analysis Shows Gov. Walker, Dem. Opponent Both Outsourced Wisconsin Jobs
As Governor, I Will Create Jobs Here, Not China, Ireland, or Illinois
Madison, WI—A new analysis “Gov. Walker, Dem. Opponent Both Outsourced Wisconsin Jobs” by the Hulsey campaign shows both that Gov. Walker and Democratic challenger both outsourced Wisconsin jobs and failed to keep up with other states in creating jobs.
A recent Channel 27 news report revealed that Gov. Walker’s WI Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) gave money to corporations that outsourced jobs to Ireland and other countries. Under Walker, Wisconsin fell to 37th in the nation in creating jobs and lags all surrounding states.
“As Governor, I will create jobs in Wisconsin, not in Sichuan Province China like my Democratic opponent or Ireland like Governor Walker,” said Hulsey, a member of the Assembly Jobs Committee. “I will not allow Gov. Walker to give our tax money to companies that ship jobs to Ireland or other countries.”
The analysis shows how Ms. Burke co-owns her father’s company Trek bikes that outsourced more than 99% of the manufacturing to China and Taiwan where they pay workers as little as $3 per hour.
“As Governor, I will fight for Wisconsin workers and jobs, not outsource jobs like Governor Walker and my Democratic opponent,” Hulsey said.
In addition to Gov. Walker’s WEDC subsidizing jobs outsourcing, the non-partisan Legislative Fiscal Bureau memo and Hulsey Campaign analysis showed that Gov. Walker contributed to the loss of 14,500 job-years by giving up more than $1 billion in healthcare, train and Internet upgrades. Gov. Walker will cost an additional $1.95 billion and 19,500 jobs and healthcare benefits to more than 120,000 people if re-elected.
“Wisconsin workers can’t afford Governor Walker or to go back to the miserable jobs record of Ms. Burke. Vote for real change on August 12th to get Wisconsin working again,” Hulsey concluded.
State Representative Brett Hulsey MNS serves on the Assembly Jobs, Energy, and Tourisms Committees, has college degrees in Political Economy and Natural Science, was a Dane County Supervisor for 14 years, owns an energy and environmental consulting business, and helped build two advanced Wisconsin bioenergy plants.
