Today Governor Scott Walker called for a special session of the Wisconsin Legislature to pass new welfare reform laws. He flew to Appleton to address the public with Assembly Speaker Robin Vos and State Senator Chris Kapenga.
“We have historically low unemployment at 3.0% and now more than ever we need to make sure that more able-bodied, working aged adults are in the work force, that’s why we’re pushing welfare reform,” said Governor Walker.
It’s called Wisconsin Works for Everyone, a plan they’ve say will make it easier to get a job in Wisconsin while making public assistance more accessible for those who need it.
The plan brings several changes to the current Wisconsin Foodshare system.
