Governor Scott Walker reiterated his objections to President Donald Trump’s proposed tariffs on steel and aluminum, during stops at Bemis Company in Oshkosh and Seneca Foods in Janesville on Tuesday.
Walker met with employees, and emphasized the negative impact tariffs would have on both firms. Bemis and Seneca Foods both rely on ultra-thin aluminum foil for core production and manufacturing operations. Seneca also produces its own steel cans for the vegetables it packs.
Other Wisconsin employers such as MillerCoors, Lakefront Brewery, and Milwaukee Tool have all voiced concerns about these tariffs.
