UPDATED: Uline groundbreaking brings visit from the governor


Duke Uihlein welcomed dignitaries to the groundbreaking for a massive distribution center in Hudson by quipping that it was Uline Shipping Supply Specialists' version of occupy Wisconsin.

The reason for the occupation, later speakers would emphasize, was Wisconsin's favorable business climate.
