collective bargaining

Vlog Entry: Rising unemployment and recalls, recalls, recalls

The Progressive Majority interns and I had lunch at Farragut North and talked to some DC locals about the issues of the day.

 

If anything, we're even more fired up about Wisconsin

In a hypocritical and duplicitous move, 18 Republican Wisconsin state senators passed Govenor Scott Walker's proposal to end collective bargaining late last night.

It's now clear to all of us: this was not about saving the budget; this was all about destroying unions. With thousands of protesters storming the state capitol we have a message to you:

How about running against these arrogant legislators and bringing union rights back in 2012?

Plunderbund: Kasich’s State of His Mind Speech
