Join fight for workers’ rights

Why does Wisconsin matter? Are there workers in California? As the budget battles rage on in Wisconsin, Ohio and Indiana, pitting American workers against the Republican establishment, a new poll shows union workers in Wisconsin are backed by a majority of Americans. The GOP is once again at odds with the consensus of Americans. The Democratic senators who have fled the state and the heavy-handed tactics of Republican Gov. Scott Walker have already signaled that they are willing to (accept) a proposed cut in compensation and benefits. Walker and his Republican majority will have none of it. What union workers are not willing to do is give up permanently their right to collective negotiation. Would you? Stand up American workers, union and non-union, and fight for your rights. You’re dreaming if you think that corporate America and the Republicans are going to change their ways. Ron Lowe, Nevada City
