You’d think that with the 24 hours news cycle and blah blah blah, we’d be hearing more about the nice folks in Wisconsin who are mad as hell and not going to take it anymore. My local papers seem to have a lot more about Libya than Madison.
Here’s where to go for info: The Daily Page (dot com).
Here’s a nice encapsulation of the hubbub from Salon:
Union leaders have agreed to pay more for their benefits, which equates to an 8 percent pay cut, as Walker has proposed as long as they can retain their bargaining rights. Walker has refused to compromise, although he said last week that he was negotiating some changes with Democrats.
For those of you like me who never thought the American public would break away from the couch and the remote control to do something like this, well, this is pretty cool stuff. Here’s a link to Huff Po’s The Best Wisconsin Protest Signs.
Happy Spring, everyone.
