Do a Nancy Reagan on these bad bills and just say “NO”.

You can get connected to your legislators through this state form

or
through the WI AFL-CIO page.

One bill destroys overtime protections.

Another removes the 24 hour required rest period in a 7-day work week.

The 3rd bill would preempt local living wage ordinances that apply to employees whose work is partially or wholly funded by the State treasury.

The third bill doesn’t affect only Milwaukee County residents but it feels like a slap at the face to those people since JUST LAST WEEK the Milwaukee County board passed a living wage bill.
