Duey Stroebel's solution to highway funding: Pay workers a shit wage

Meet the scariest person in the Wisconsin State Senate.

You'll find the full report here.

And just in case you're not sure what he's talking about.

Four months after eliminating a salary minimum for those building local roads, Republican lawmakers are proposing a bill that would also limit the effect of federal wage and environmental requirements on some highway projects in Wisconsin. 
Supporters say the change would give the state more bang for its buck on road projects. Detractors argue that lawmakers should focus on finding long-term solutions to the state's road funding woes instead of continuing to target highway workers' pay. [Emphasis added]
