Madison, Feb. 28: WI AFL-CIO Solidarity Rally To Defeat Right-to-Work-For-Less
Working families will rally in Madison on Saturday at noon to oppose right to work. Late on Wednesday, the Senate passed a right to work bill and the Assembly is expected to take it up next week. This bill will cut wages and benefits for all Wisconsin workers, increase workplace deaths and erode the working class. Stand in solidarity as we continue to raise our voices against this attack on working families and our communities.
