New Report Explains Significance of Wisconsin for American Democracy and Middle Class
Published 03 Mar, 2011
The attempt by Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker to strip collective bargaining rights from public employees has turned Wisconsin into ground zero for democracy in America.
A new report from TWU lays out the impact and ramifications of what is happening in Wisconsin for the future of America, the economy and working families and debunks the lies about public workers and state budgets.
Getting rid of collective bargaining and permanently weakening unions would leave all working people, not just union workers, completely defenseless and at the mercy of the rich. At its heart, the battle in Wisconsin is not just about solidarity with union workers. It is a struggle for the soul of America. It is about defending our future. It is about all of our human rights. We are at a defining moment in our history where we are being shown that America as a nation cannot be free if any of her people are not free.
