Fresh off approving a $3 billion package of incentives for Foxconn, Gov. Scott Walker turned his attention to small businesses during a visit to Green Bay Wednesday.
Walker unveiled a four-part plan he said will lower tax burdens and expand the workforce in order to help support companies with fewer than 100 employees. He asked the Greater Green Bay Chamber, small business owners and local state legislators in attendance to help him spread the word.
“In terms of employing people, small businesses are our bread and butter,” Walker said. “A lot of this plan is preaching to the choir, but I really want you to sing about this.”
Walker said the state budget takes steps toward some of the goals while others will need the Legislature’s help to accomplish.
