One fired, two suspended after armed workers photo surfaced

A controversial photo showing men working for the city brandishing a gun has cost one man his job. 

Two more workers are also facing punishment. They all worked for American Sewer Services in Waukesha County. 

The owner of American Sewer Services didn’t take any time to take disciplinary action and Milwaukee Alderman Russell Stamper is pleased with this outcome. 

Stamper says the two employees on suspension are also under investigation

The photo that’s gone viral was taken at 19th and Meinecke. The city summoned the company to meet with them to discuss the photo Tuesday.
