Gov. Scott Walker bagged groceries Tuesday at Stinebrink’s Piggly Wiggly, 100 E. Geneva Square in Lake Geneva as part of "Take Your Legislator to Work" campaign.
Walker was invited by Steven Pils, an employee of the store who also is a client at V.I.P. Services in Elkhorn.
The event, sponsored by the Wisconsin Board for People with Developmental Disabilities is designed to help legislators understand the challenges and experiences of people with disabilities who work in the community and make a living wage.
Walker was met by owner Mark Stinebrink and spent about 30 minutes talking to Pils and bagging groceries at the checkout line. Walker's visit attracted extra visitors to the store, including a group of students from First Lutheran School in Lake Geneva.
Walker mentioned that he'd worked in a fast food restaurant growing up, as had Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Janesville).
