This from Moveon.org. If you care about labor rights in the U.S. If you know what workers’ lives were like before organized labor, before the widespread middle-class life so many Americans came to enjoy during the twentieth century – events in Wisconsin, now Illinois, Indiana and more, are the reactionary Right’s final assault on workers’ ability to hold any united power against corporate wealth and power and their political allies.

50-State Mobilization to Save the American Dream
Add your endorsement to the Emergency Call to Action
Calling all students, teachers, union members, workers, patriots, public servants, unemployed folks, progressives, and people of conscience:
In Wisconsin and around our country, the American Dream is under fierce attack. Instead of creating jobs, Republicans are giving tax breaks to corporations and the very rich, and then cutting funding for education, police, emergency response and vital human services. The right to organize is on the chopping block. The American Dream is slipping out of reach for more and more Americans, and we have to fight back.
We call for emergency rallies in front of every statehouse this Saturday at noon to stand in solidarity with the people of Wisconsin. Demand an end to the attacks on workers’ rights and public services across the country. Demand investment, to create decent jobs for the millions of people who desperately want to work. And demand that the rich and powerful pay their fair share.
We are all Wisconsin.
We are all Americans.
Add your endorsement and this Saturday we will sta
