The war on working people spreads throughout the Rust Belt

1 post / 0 new

After seeing what’s happening in nearby states like Wisconsin, Ohio, and Indiana – Michiganders are trying to protect workers from the right-wing assault on unions. The group “Protect Our Jobs” has collected more 320,000 signatures to for a ballot initiative that will allow voters in November to decide if the rights to collectively bargain should be added to the state’s constitution.

Currently – Michigan Republicans have introduced more than 80 bills to claw back right for working people. And a slew of corporate funded front groups have already sprung up in the Wolverine State to fight back against this ballot initiative. While working people may have been routed by big money in Wisconsin a few weeks ago, the fight continues elsewhere around the nation. So let’s help working people stay organized and keep growing the movement to retake our economy and government from the oligarchs.
