Capper told us all about the latest ridiculous attack ad that Scott Walker is currently running, using children as props, and desperately trying to scare WI into voting for him again.
Here it is -
In other words, career politician Scott Walker(whose name is never mentioned) and who self declared Wisconsin "open for business" has a problem with people who have made a career and money working for the family company(unless you pay WMC dues). By strictly attacking Mary Burke, Scott Walker is telling you to be very afraid and that he is the lesser of two evils.
As for attacking Trek, probably not the best idea he has ever had. This ad has even drawn the ire of Trek President John Burke(Mary's brother):
"When people make blatantly false accusations about a company you've spent your lifetime building and you have 1,800 employees who are proud about what they do every day, that just isn't right," John Burke said.Scott Walker's stance on being called out for an blatantly untrue attack ad? Exactly what you would expect it to be:
Trek was founded in Waterloo in the 1970s by John and Mary Burke's father and is now the second-largest bike manufacturer worldwide. Mary Burke worked as an executive at Trek twice, leaving the company in 2004.
John Burke said all decisions about where to locate jobs were his and not his sister's. Mary Burke worked for Trek as the head of its European division from 1990 to 1993 and again from 1995 until 2004, with her most recent job being director of planning and strategic planning.
John Burke said Trek does not employ children at its overseas plants. He said Trek has manufacturing plants in China, Germany and Holland and they all strictly follow local labor laws.
"We produce product in a lot of places and there are different wages for different jobs," he said when asked whether workers at the China plant earned $2 an hour. "We always pay in accordance to labor guidelines and rules and what's the standard wage for the area. We're very concerned for workers' rights and the workers' environment."
But John Burke said if he were governor, he would take the ad down.
"It's embarrassing," he said. "I would be embarrassed."
Walker's campaign stood by the ad running statewide and said it won't be taken down
Scott Walker, willing to lie and attack good Wisconsin companies to reach his goal. Is that the kind of person we want representing us to the rest of the world?
