DULUTH - Environmental and labor workers called on state leaders to save jobs.They gathered at Bayfront Park urging Congressmen Chip Cravaack and Sean Duffy to fight for a production tax credit, that supports the wind industry, to be extended.
They say without the extension more than 35,000 wind supported jobs will be lost in the country and hundreds in Minnesota and Wisconsin.
"Congressmen Cravaack and Duffy need to be on the front lines of this fight,” said Ray Pierce with the United Steelworkers.
“I always hear from politicians that jobs are the number one priority, well it's time that these two show us that's the truth."
If it's not renewed the tax credit will expire at the end of the year.
