We’re always being told to “buy local.” It’s fundamentally important that we “hire local” too when it comes to our major construction projects. Wisconsin contractors paying a responsible wage to our highly trained Wisconsin trades people ensures that the money – and taxes – stay here to maintain the quality of life that we’ve come to enjoy. A good example is the new Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee.
