Wisconsin rallies against Right-to-Work law scheduled

The Wisconsin State AFL-CIO and others have scheduled rallies in Wisconsin this week. The rallies are in opposition to the so called “Right-to-Work” legislation being fast tracked by Republicans.

The introduction of this anti-worker legislation is an attempt to interfere with the dealings between employers and their employees. The idea that such legislation would be introduced by people who begin to hyperventilate at the slightest hint of government interference is hypocritical at best.

Let’s be clear. The law is not being introduced just in Wisconsin. It’s across the country. It’s being pushed by business interests from outside the states it’s being introduced in. The politicians are reacting like puppets on a string doing what they are told to do. Doing what those who finance there political campaigns desire.

Republicans are attacking workers and their families. The aren’t governing, taking care day to day business and doing what’s in the best interest of voters. They are acting like attack dogs for the ultra right wing of their party.

Please participate in the rallies being held in Wisconsin and other states where these actions against workers are being orchestrated by authors like the American Legislative Exchange Council or ALEC. The people really running the “Right-to-Work-for-less” show.

Workers and community members from across Wisconsin are gearing up to make their voices heard and participate in democracy this week at the Capitol in order to halt anti-worker Right to Work legislation.

Here’s a list of events:

10:00 a.m. Tuesday, February 24: The Senate Labor Committee will hear public testimony from concerned citizens starting at 10:00 a.m. and lasting until testimony is finished. Please join by coming to Room to Be Announced to tell your elected officials how Right to Work will hurt your family, your business, your workplace and your community.

12:00 p.m. Tuesday, February 24: Rally on the State Street side of the Capitol. Testimony will continue against Right to Work during and after the rally.

12:00 p.m. Wednesday, February 25: Rally on the State Street side of the Capitol in Madison.
Add your name to the petition to stand firm against Right to Work legislation in Wisconsin.

Our elected representatives need to hear that the public is against Right to Work legislation. Right to Work is wrong for all Wisconsin families. Right to work will not create jobs and will lower wages for all workers – making it harder for hard-working families to reach the American Dream.

Stand up for the middle class. Stand up against Right to Work. See you in Madison this week!
