“No one gives a (expletive) about low-wage workers”

Former Milwaukee County Supervisor Eyon Biddle Sr. is standing by his story.

Biddle maintains that he had a 2006 encounter with local developer Jon Hammes in which the businessman said, “No one gives a (expletive) about low-wage workers.”

Current Supervisor Theo Lipscomb recently recounted the rumor at a Milwaukee County Board meeting just before a vote to grant a purchase option to a firm run by Hammes for a parcel of land at the Park East. The board eventually sent the proposal back to committee.

An attorney for Hammes said last week that there’s no truth to the story.
