Official said Walker should have had safety gear
Labor official says Walker unsafe in ladder in hole ad

Gov. Scott Walker’s opponents have been trying to dig up dirt on him for years, and now they think they’ve unearthed a nugget.

One labor official is criticizing a recent Walker ad — not for its content but because he says Walker is setting an unsafe example.

The ad shows Walker standing in a 6-foot hole. As he touts his Republican record he climbs a ladder to symbolize progress.

But the president of the United Steelworkers Local 2006 said Walker is setting a dangerous example. Jeff Kaminiski said Walker isn’t wearing safety gear, and the hole is deep enough that the dirt walls should be shored up to prevent a collapse.

Walker’s campaign didn’t immediately return a message late Tuesday.

Labor officials are supporting Walker’s challenger, Democrat Mary Burke.
