Keep an eye on Wisconsin this month

2 posts / 0 new

The field is set for the Wisconsin recall election scheduled for June 5th – and it’s going to be a rematch. Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett won the Democratic nomination Tuesday night – giving him another shot at defeating one of America’s most unpopular Governors – Scott Walker – who Barrett lost to in 2010 by 6-points. But this time around – things are different.

With the labor movement fighting for its life – and millions of Wisconsinites organized for a common purpose: to end Scott Walker’s war on working people – then Progressives have a real shot at taking back the Badger State. But they’re going to have to overcome more than $20 million in out-of-state millionaire and billionaire campaign contributions that Walker has raised in the last few months.

GOP Blocks Equal Pay...again.

Just in time for election season, Senate Republicans blocked legislation aimed at closing the gender pay gap. For the third time since 2012, Republicans refused to allow debate on the Paycheck Fairness Act, and reminded women that the GOP doesn't believe in equal pay for equal work.
