Milwaukee Department of Public Works to address guns on the job following contractor controversy

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Department of Public Works is making sure people know their employees can't carry guns on the job. This comes after a picture of contractors carrying guns caused concern in Milwaukee. 

The Commissioner of the Department of Public Works plans to make his way to City Hall Wednesday morning. He'll be talking about the rules about guns on the job when it comes to contractors and subcontractors. 

The picture that caused a stir on social media shows a contractor who was hired by DPW holding a gun and two co-workers open carrying in their holsters. The photo was taken at the intersection of 19th and Meinecke. 

The contractor holding the gun has been let go and the other two men are on leave. 

 The Commissioner will hold the discussion at 9:00 a.m. Wednesday. You can watch the discussion on the city's channel or live stream it here.
