Wisconsin businesses are hurting from tariffs imposed by Mexico, Canada, and Europe. 

Fifth District Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner heard from some of those business owners at a town hall meeting in Menomonee Falls Sunday night.  Companies buying steel and aluminum from Canada, Mexico, and Europe have been hit with a 25-percent tariff since June 1st.   Some U-S trading partners have also put tariffs on a number of Wisconsin products, including Harley-Davidson motorcycles, cheese, yogurt, pork, cranberries, sweetcorn, ginseng, wood, boats, paper, and shoes.
