The WI AFL-CIO Working Families Budget Guide

Wisconsin union members are making our voices heard for a pro-worker budget at budget hearings hosted by the Wisconsin Legislature’s Joint Finance Committee (JFC) and at Badger Bounceback Live sessions held by Governor Evers. Wisconsinites deserve a budget that supports working people through the pandemic and lays the foundation for a more prosperous future for all. That means restoring basic worker rights and addressing the needs of our schools, communities, and healthcare providers while making key investments in infrastructure and workforce training so that we can build back better while providing real relief for working families.  

Use our just released Wisconsin AFL-CIO Working Families 2021-2023 Budget Summary as your guide for in-depth analysis on how Governor Evers’ Budget supports our families, our unions, and our communities.
