Scott Walker's Union-Busting is driving Employers OUT of Wisconsin
Hoffman Construction Company of Black River Falls, Wisconsin, will be relocating to Minnesota. Hoffman Construction specializes in mining and road-building. And why is the company moving? Because of the “right to work” (euphemism alert!) legislation that Scott Walker has just signed; and because of Wisconsin's (and other red states') refusal to maintain their roads and highways. According to the Duluth News Tribune:
“Hoffman said Monday night that the reason is twofold: he believes the right-to-work law will ultimately cost his company money, and he sees Minnesota’s proposal to increase transportation funding as offering greater business opportunities.”
All right!!! Let's hope Hoffman Construction Company is starting a trend.
The score so far: tax-and-spend Blue States 1, “Job Creators” 0.
