Talks about bold conservative reforms, tax cuts, workforce development, & other top issues on major Wisconsin Sunday show

[Madison, Wis.] – In case you missed it, Governor Scott Walker was on UpFront with Mike Gousha over the weekend, telling viewers of the major Wisconsin Sunday show that “We laid out a series of reforms that we said were tough and necessary but would lead to prosperity, would lead to better times. These are the better times.”

The governor cited Wisconsin’s unemployment – the lowest since April of 2000 – as proof, along with its Top 10 status related to workforce, ACT scores, high school graduation rates, and health care access. You can watch the entire interview here, or find excerpts on key issues below:

On bold conservative reforms:

“We laid out a plan, it’s why I call it a Reform Dividend. This is not a bonus, this is not unexpected. We laid out a series of reforms that we said were tough and necessary but would lead to prosperity, would lead to better times. These are the better times.”

On workforce development and historic investments in K-12 education:

“Workforce to me is the number one priority in the budget. When [we have] more people employed in the state than we ever have before and unemployment rates are down to 3.4 percent, that’s the lowest it’s been since April of the year 2000.”

On fighting alongside President Trump for Wisconsin dairy farmers:

“I advocated for this almost a year ago with then President Obama’s administration with his trade representative and the ag secretary. Obviously, we did the same with the president, the current president, and thank God – I appreciate President Trump stepping up and being, I think much more aggressive than just about anyone thought he would be.”
