Over the last several weeks I have been reading and watching the events in Wisconsin as they unfold.
One thing is perfectly obvious. The unions are being made out to be the enemy when in fact they are the biggest ally that the working class citizen can have. They fight against big business and big government for your rights to:
1. A decent, living wage..not just a surviving wage.
2. Decent benefits..ie.. health insurance, prescription and eye coverage
3. Decent working conditions, guarding against unsafe conditions in the factory, office etc.
