A co-publication with Demos, Under Attack: Wisconsin’s Middle Class and the Jobs Crisis shows that Wisconsinites are facing a lack of good jobs, declining access to benefits, higher costs to raise children and decreasing access to post-secondary credentials, among other challenges. According to the briefing paper, these trends -- combined with 2011-13 cuts to education, public worker pensions, and corporate taxes -- are squeezing Wisconsin’s workers out of the middle class and moving economic opportunity and security further out of reach.
