Milwaukee Public Works investigating after photo of lunch box with KKK sticker at construction site near 25th and Wells

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- On Friday afternoon a photo started circulating on social media in Milwaukee of a lunch box with stickers representing the Confederate flag and Ku Klux Klan. 

According to the account that posted the photo, the lunch box belonged to a someone working at a construction site in Milwaukee near 25th and Wells.

The Communications Manager for the City of Milwaukee Department of Public Works sent CBS 58 a statement that read:

"The stickers are offensive to the Administration and DPW. If, in fact, the cooler with the stickers belongs to an individual working on a City contract, it would be best if the individual works someplace other than the City of Milwaukee."

The Department of Public Works is investigating the incident.
