We know now which prevailing wage concerns Scot Ross

The organization with the wonderfully fascist-sounding name, One Wisconsin Now, a self-admitted partisan organization, sent out this "urgent appeal" from Scot Ross this morning:

I wasn't going to email you today, but last night during the budget debate Assembly Republicans tried to kill the state budget's prevailing wage plan -- and we need your help more than ever.

You and I know how important the stakes are. And so do our brothers and sisters who have suffered from wage rate violations. Just last year, the state found wage violations at over 35 percent of its on-site investigations. That's money out of the pockets of working men and women and out of our local economies.

Help us keep up the fight for prevailing wage, by clicking here and making a one-time, online contribution to One Wisconsin Now for $20, $45, $75, $100 -- whatever you can afford today. We've got powerful forces against us, but we can win.

I don't know why he didn't want to e-mail me today. Everyone else is e-mailing me.

But at least we know which prevailing wage Ross is fighting for - his.
