Yet Another Lesson in Republican Hypocrisy

One of the GOP principles as subscribed to by the Republican Party of Wisconsin.

Wisconsin bill banning local 'living wage' laws concern Barrett, Abele. (Wisconsin Business Journal, 2/12/2014)

The only Assembly sponsor of AB 750. Wisconsin Rep. Chris Kapenga (R-Delafield) on Tuesday introduced a state bill banning local living wage requirements on companies that do work using local government money. It also would ban local worker requirements on contracts that receive state or federal money.

Glenn Grothman is the only sponsor in the Senate, where I hope this bill will die a quick and well-deserved death.

Not surprising, there is this model legislation from the American Legislative Exchange Council, of which Kapenga and Grothman are members.
