Michigan workers protest Wisconsin’s Walker
Published Apr 27, 2012 10:57 PM
Several thousand Detroit-area workers picketed along a busy, suburban, eight-lane boulevard during afternoon rush hour on April 17 to protest Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker. Walker’s union-busting and anti-worker schemes caused a people’s uprising in that state beginning in February 2011. The Troy, Mich., Republican fundraiser featuring Walker angered Michigan workers, who are also under severe attack. Hundreds of members of the United Auto Workers, Michigan Education Association and dozens of other unions joined the demonstration, along with activists from Good Jobs Now, Michigan Emergency Committee Against War & Injustice, and other progressive and community organizations.
