MILWAUKEE, Wis. — There’s no longer any uncertainty Milwaukee County taxpayers will have to spend nearly $2 million more for janitorial services because of the county’s Big Labor-influenced “living wage.”
The Milwaukee County Finance, Personnel and Audit Committee on Thursday approved a resolution by a 7-0 vote guaranteeing the next firm chosen to clean specific county facilities will have to pay their employees a wage of at least $11.32 an hour.
The resolution, presented by Supervisor David Bowen, who wrote the local living wage ordinance with help from Service Employees International Union-affiliated officials, requires several county agencies to reissue a request for proposal for housekeeping services at about 15 government buildings.
