Marshfield, Wisconsin

Retiree proud to be union in Wisconsin

I RETIRED AFTER 41 1/2 years as a Boilermaker. I was very proud to be a union worker for my whole welding career! Proud to be a union worker and fight against this anti-labor governor in Wisconsin. He is a piece of work!

Thank you for all you do to help unions!

State becomes 26th with anti-union law

IN ANOTHER BLOW to American labor, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker signed right-to-work legislation into law March 9. The bill cleared the Republican-controlled legislature in Madison along party lines. The state Senate narrowly approved it February 25 by a 17-15 margin; the state Assembly passed the measure March 6 by a 62-35 vote to bring the bill before Walker.
