Wisconsin’s Scott Walker signs right to work law, opponents will continue fight
Madison, WI – Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker signed into law a ‘right to work’ measure, March 9, that impacts workers in the private sector. The law is expected to harm trade unions and depress wages.
Workers from across Wisconsin and nearby states participated in several large rallies in Madison opposing the law.
Teamster activist Daniel Ginsberg commented, “Scott Walker is signing away our rights in order to help businesses weaken contracts and lower wages. Thousands of protesters at the capitol disagreed and will continue fighting even after this becomes law.”
Republicans in other states, such as West Virginia, are also pushing right to work measures.
