Message from your host, Joe S.: New Yorkers Stand with Wisconsin Workers!
In Wisconsin and around our country, the fundamental right to collectively bargain is under fierce attack. The Governor of Wisconsin has used the excuse of a budget crisis to eliminate workers rights to negotiate. The people of Wisconsin are fighting back by the tens of thousands. Wisconsinites are serving as an inspiration for the rest of the country facing Republicans more concerned with giving tax breaks to corporations and the very rich and cutting funding for education, police, emergency response, and vital human services than creating jobs.
Join us in front of the New York State Capitol. We demand an end to the attacks on workers collective bargaining rights in Wisconsin and the rest of the country. We will not stand by as peoples rights are stripped away.
We are all Wisconsin.
We are all Americans.
This Saturday, we will stand together in Albany as New Yorkers in Solidarity with the Wisconsin workers and send a message to those that wish to eliminate the middle class we are united and we are ready to fight.
