Burke talks jobs at Chippewa Valley stop


EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) The day after Governor Scott Walker launches his campaign for re-election, his challenger Mary Burke stops by the Chippewa Valley, to discuss her 'invest for success' jobs plan.

Burke visited reality works in Eau Claire and Western Technical College in La Crosse.

The candidate says she is committed to making Wisconsin a top ten economy in the nation.

Burke says her jobs plan focuses on creating more good paying jobs and making sure people have the skills to fill those jobs.

"We have to make sure every student leaves high school with a career path in mind and they know what kind of skills they need to use and what that path is going to be," says Burke.

Tuesday, when Governor Walker toured the state, he said he deserves re-election for cutting taxes by nearly $2 billion, and adding more than 100,000 private sector jobs.
