Rachel Maddow tells us how many of the things we value as workers, we have Wisconsin to thank for – weekends off, unemployment insurance, compensation for injuries, etc.
In my opinion, it appears as if the Republicans generally have decided that the next step in whatever their playbook is is to end the power of workers and unions. I say that because a number of Republican states seem poised to follow Wisconsin’s “lead” and try to end collective bargaining. Too bad they chose Wisconsin to pitch their battle in because Wisconsin, it turns out, has fought many a battle for workers’ benefits. Thanks to Casey, who says he’s one proud resident of Wisconsin right around now.
