The Wisconsin Assembly early today approved union-busting legislation. The Senate, with its missing Democrats, is next.
A rally is scheduled at noon Saturday in Little Rock at the Capitol steps to show support for Wisconsin workers. Martin Halpern, a history professor at Henderson State, also told me he hopes to form an Arkansas Public Workers Solidarity Committee as a followup to this event. His daughter, a history grad student in Wisconsin, has been working in the Wisconsin movement. He sends a link to an uplifting video.
