The National Working Families Party has launched an affiliate in Wisconsin and hired a Milwaukee County supervisor as its state leader.

The party, now active in nine states, describes itself as progressive with an interest in raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour, expanding voter registration, fair policing and supporting public schools. Milwaukee County Supervisor Marina Dimitrijevic has just been hired as executive director of the Wisconsin Working Families Party.

She said the economy is broken: “The pursuit of the American dream, unfortunately, has become a little bit more difficult and out of the hands of working families.”
