On Monday, MMAC will take the next step forward in its lawsuit challenging the
Milwaukee Sick Leave Ordinance. As you recall, this mandate passed in last November’s
elections. MMAC has maintained the mandate is a violation of state statute and
the Wisconsin Constitution and would create an island of regulation in the City
of Milwaukee that would seriously harm our regional competitiveness. We have heard
from hundreds of members that this mandate would be a significant burden on their
business and MMAC was successful in getting an injunction temporarily blocking
implementation of the ordinance, which was slated to go into effect in February.
