We Are Wisconsin and the Wisconsin Wave will host a rally on the Capitol steps on Saturday, May 14, to send Scott Walker and his legislative allies a resounding message: stop your attacks on working people.
Reintroducing plans to take bargaining rights away from workers into Scott Walker’s fatally-flawed state budget would consolidate Walker’s attacks on Wisconsin’s middle class into a single, horrific piece of legislation. Scott Walker’s budget:
*Raises costs in health care and food assistance programs that are relied upon by 1.2 million workers, unemployed, retired and disabled people in Wisconsin*Breaks up and corporatizes the UW System, raising tuition and threatening closure of campuses*Guts the ability of Wisconsin Technical Colleges to prepare and retrain working people*Eliminates advanced placement and science and technology course in schools*Rolls back recycling and conservation programs throughout Wisconsin
The legislature must reject this horrifying budget and start over. Join Us!
