how do I refer to tags I’ve already used? Or do I not?
Wisconsin’s tea party-backed governor, Scott Walker, has launched an ideological crusade against his own citizens’ collective bargaining rights. He’s using the pretense of a state budget deficit to curb the rights of teachers and other public employees in his state to unionize — rights we’ve recognized here in America for over 80 years to assure better working conditions and fairer compensation for all workers.
I just signed Senator Dick Durbin’s petition supporting the fourteen brave Democratic state senators — backed by tens of thousands of ordinary citizens protesting outside the State Capitol — boycotting a vote on the governor’s plan.
Please join me in showing your support for the “Wisconsin 14’s” boycott, and stand up against Governor Walker’s assault on the rights of American workers.
