The Candidates

Governor:

cap

Mary Burke (D)

  • Mary Burke supports increasing the minimum wage to $10.10 so that people who work full time don’t have to rely on government assistance to survive.
  • She supports the rights of workers to engage in collective bargaining and stick together for the fair wages and benefits that they deserve.
  • She believes that education is the best anti-poverty program and has a plan to make higher education more affordable for every student in Wisconsin.

 

 

Scott Walker (R)

  • Governor Scott Walker’s promise in 2010 to add 250,000 jobs by 2013 was broken – he wasn’t able to add even half that amount. Wisconsin is lagging behind the national economy and is dead last in the Midwest in job growth.
  • In 2011, he signed a law that stripped Wisconsin public workers of their right to stick together and bargain for a better life. If his tenure continues, he may do the same for every worker in Wisconsin.
  • He opposes raising the state’s minimum wage from its current level of $7.25, which forces people who work full time to rely on government assistance to survive.
