Statement from Mayor Cavalier Johnson on the Impending Closure

of Master Lock’s Milwaukee Manufacturing Facility

“I am enormously disappointed by the impending closure of the Master Lock facility.  It is a slap in the face to the hardworking Milwaukee employees. They certainly deserve greater respect and appreciation from their company. 

“About a decade ago, Master Lock invited President Barack Obama to this same facility to celebrate the in-shoring of jobs.  Now, the company is going in the opposite direction, defying the trend of growing manufacturing jobs in the United States.

“As of this morning, Fortune Brands has not reached out to me, and I have heard no logical explanation for their actions.”
