What we need is a "21st Century Full Employment Act for Peace and Prosperity" which would make it a mandatory requirement that the president and Congress attain and maintain full employment.

Laura Friedenbach the Press Secretary for the foundation-funded Bold Progressives fronting for the Democrats and the National Indian Gaming Association wants you to know...

That Kelly Westlund wants to keep you working for poverty wages.


This is the e-mail I received from Laura Friedenbach, the Press Secretary for the foundation-funded Bold Progressives.



Laura didn't explain why Kelly Westlund is taking campaign contributions from the National Indian Gaming Association and the thoroughly corrupt Mike Wiggins, Jr. who refuses to put up "No Smoking" signs at the Bad River Casino.


Kelly Weslund says she supports the Minimum Wage being $10.10 an hour. This is one more poverty wage; it is not a real living wage that takes into consideration "cost-of-living." 




See my blog post Laura Friedenbach is responding to:

Hey Alan -- Kelly Westlund has been outspoken about her support for raising the minimum wage. Last month she went directly to Sean Duffy's offices in Superior and Wausau to demand he give Americans a raise. Think you can make that fact clear for your readers? You can check out some of the news coverage below. 



Best,
Laura



My advice to Laura and Kelly: 

Try living on $10.10 and see what it is like.
