So the man who has been in a government job for his entire life knows better than the thousands of business owners who are asking for this? Riiiight… Notice how he doesn’t offer an explanation.

During a news conference in Middleton, Evers said he hasn’t seen the specific bill announced Tuesday by Republican leaders, but said he has concerns about the proposal to strike enhanced benefits during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Evers also pushed back against comments by Republicans lawmakers and dozens of business organizations that those increased benefits have created a disincentive to work and exacerbate workforce shortage issues.
“I don’t buy it,” Evers said. “We’re seeking a solution that this is not the answer to.”
“I would be less than honest if I didn’t say I am strongly considering vetoing it, but I haven’t decided,” the Democratic governor added.
