Dan Kanner and Tami Johnson, both from the New Party, discuss their party’s similarities and
differences from the Labor Party. The new party stands for "a fair economy and a real democracy". They both speak about the injustices in their region of Milwalkee and their victories in
raising the minimum wage in Milwalkee. Kanner and Johnson believe that neither the democrats or the republicans represent represent the communities that they want to work for. They believe firmly in improving education and children’s services and believe that their New Party is capable of
doing so.
