Barnes Campaign: Released the Make it Here plan to empower manufacturing and communities in Wisconsin


MADSON — Mandela Barnes today unveiled his new policy agenda to revive manufacturing in Wisconsin, strengthen unions and invest in communities that have lost manufacturing jobs.

In the US Senate, Mandela will:

  • Prioritize American manufacturing and stop shipping jobs overseas;

  • Fix supply chain problems by crafting things at home.

  • Enter into unfair trade deals;

  • Use tax reform to keep jobs at home and support small and medium-sized manufacturers;

  • Invest in 21st century manufacturing capabilities;

  • Train our people to take on tomorrow’s jobs;

  • building a stronger middle class by supporting unions;

  • Revitalizing the Wisconsin communities left behind.

“Growing up in a manufacturing family, I was taught that if you want something built right, you build it right here in Wisconsin,” he said Lt. Governor Mandela Barnes, candidate for the US Senate. “But as I travel across the state, I hear the same stories about outsourced jobs, rising prices, supply chain problems and labor shortages due to a lack of childcare. We have an opportunity to address these issues by restoring Wisconsin as a nationwide manufacturing leader while creating high-paying, family-supporting jobs.

“So today I’m sharing my plan to breathe new life into Wisconsin manufacturing, create new jobs, strengthen our unions, and support communities left behind so the next generation can thrive here. In the Senate, I will fight to ensure that the brightest days of manufacturing in Wisconsin are ahead, not behind us.”

“When it comes to expanding opportunities for well-paying union jobs and revitalizing our communities, there is no one I trust more than Mandela Barnes,” he said John Drew, Vice President of UAW Local 72. Mandela’s Make It Here plan is the boost Wisconsin manufacturing desperately needs. In addition to revitalizing the industry, the plan will make Wisconsin a leader in sustainable manufacturing through the production of electric vehicles, solar panels and windmills. In doing so, we will rebuild our economy and expand the very opportunities that my friend Jesse Barnes, Mandela’s father, had on the UAW assembly line as a member – opportunities that allowed Jesse to build a middle-class family and raise our next US Senator from Wisconsin. “
