Sen. Tammy Baldwin promoting Worker Owned Wealth Act in Oconomowoc
OCONOMOWOC, Wis. (CBS 58) – Wisconsin Senator Tammy Baldwin stopped in Oconomowoc on Friday, promoting new legislation aimed at helping Wisconsin workers.
It’s called the “Worker Owned Wealth Act” and is designed to give workers a stronger voice by expanding their ownership at companies and giving them a greater say in the decision making process.
“Too often we only find the short term profits if the shareholders are viewed in decision making. This is a great example of a win-win-win situation you have with worker ownership,” says Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D) – Wisconsin.
Baldwin says she hopes this bill will lead to better wages for workers in Wisconsin.
