In Wisconsin and around our country, the American Dream is under fierce attack. Instead of creating jobs, Republicans are giving tax breaks to corporations and the very rich—and then cutting funding for education, police, emergency response, and vital human services.
On Saturday, February 26, at noon local time, we are organizing rallies in front of every statehouse and in every major city to stand in solidarity with the people of Wisconsin. We demand an end to the attacks on worker’s rights and public services across the country. We demand investment, to create decent jobs for the millions of people who desperately want to work. And we demand that the rich and powerful pay their fair share.
We are all Wisconsin. We are all Americans.
This Saturday, we will stand together to Save the American Dream. Be sure to wear Wisconsin Badger colors—red
Get out and get involved. Stand for working people and against corporate money influencing our politics.

“We have to unshackle managers’ hands so they can run things responsibly,” said state Rep. Dan Winslow (R-Norfolk), who served under former Gov. Mitt Romney and is currently U.S. Sen. Scott Brown’s legal counsel…
Local union officials quickly blasted the bill, saying Massachusetts’ political leaders were unlikely to follow the national anti-union tide that’s hit Wisconsin, Indiana, Ohio and Oklahoma.
