As long as Wisconsin is locked into GOP gerrymandered control, our state keeps falling further and further behind. We're trying to get people to come and work here while keeping the federal minimum wage of $7.25 an hour? Good luck.
Wisconsin is lagging behind most of its Midwest neighbors in attracting highly educated workers.
Plus this story just happened, taking out of the mix even more job creation:
Three out of the four states that border Wisconsin — Illinois, Michigan and Minnesota — have now legalized marijuana use and two of them allow residents to purchase and consume cannabis for any reason.Pot is causing problems in other States? Yeah, I guess,...
While more and more state legislatures are embracing legal marijuana for medical or recreational reasons — 33 in all — Wisconsin isn't likely to anytime soon.
"Some of the results of legalization in other states have been troubling," said Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald, a Republican from Juneau. "It would be wise for Wisconsin to take a more measured approach and wait to see how it plays out in other states in the Midwest before rushing any kind of legalization here."
All 33 states have apparently rushed blindly ahead of Wisconsin, who finally approved agricultural hemp?
It was no accident that Tony Evers became governor. The public is ready for progress no matter how many suck-ups stroke the egos of our gerrymandered Republican "winners" in their districts.
