Wisconsin's anti-worker law: An historic attack on the working class

March 11, 2011 by legitgov

Wisconsin's anti-worker law: An historic attack on the working class By Tom Eley 11 Mar 2011 The Wisconsin Assembly’s passage of a bill that will strip collective bargaining rights and cut wages and benefits for nearly 200,000 public sector workers marks a giant step toward the open dictatorship of the banks and corporations. The approval of the anti-worker bill came the day after Republicans pushed it through the State Senate in a secretive, and likely illegal, legislative maneuver... This language is yet another signal that the epoch of class compromise in the US has come to a definitive end. Ruling layers are attempting to turn back the clock to the nineteenth century and the most savage exploitation of the working class.

March 11, 2011 by legitgov

Alaska Rep. Wants Polar Bear Hide Imports Legalized 10 Mar 2011 Congressman Don Young (R-Sociopath-AK) is reintroducing legislation that would allow hunters to import polar bear hides legally killed in Canada.
