Now, the only thing keeping this horrible bill from becoming law are state Senate Democrats -- who boldly left the state and are blocking the Senate from voting.
This Saturday in every state across the nation, there will be rallies in solidarity with these senators and Wisconsin workers.
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.
On Saturday, February 26, at noon local time, we are organizing rallies in front of every statehouse and in every major city to stand in solidarity with the people of Wisconsin. We demand an end to the attacks on worker's rights and public services across the country. We demand investment, to create decent jobs for the millions of people who desperately want to work. And we demand that the rich and powerful pay their fair share.
