Right-to-work legislation is nearly ready for Governor Scott Walker’s signature. The bill has yet to pass the Assembly, but Walker told the annual Business Day in Madison, sponsored by Wisconsin Manufactures and Commerce, that he plans to sign it next week.
“By passing that, and by us signing it into law on Monday, it gives us one more tremendous tool,” Walker said. Walker said making Wisconsin the nation’s 25th right-to-work state sends a strong message to job creators. “If you’re a company that’s here and you’re looking to grow, or if you’re talking to one of your colleagues in the industry and trying to get someone to come here, we now have given one more big thing on that checklist to say that Wisconsin is open for business.”
Right-to-work has been the product a fast-paced legislative process which saw the controversial bill introduced less than two weeks ago. The state Assembly is set to debate the measure on Thursday.
