1 Day Until State House Unity Rally for Wisconsin Workers

Friday, February 25, 2011 – New Jersey State House – At 12:00 Noon

 

We urge you, your friends, and family to stand in solidarity with the Wisconsin workers at the State House this Friday, and to be a part of history. Momentum is building across the nation, and with worldwide attention on Wisconsin, this has become a defining moment for the labor movement. WE ARE ONE, and together we will fight as one on behalf of workers’ rights, sending a message that union busting is not a budget solution and that those who created the economic meltdown are the ones who should be held responsible.
