Social media and collective bargaining rights in Wisconsin

Bill Hurley, posting on the Wisconsin Education Association Council’s website, writes that Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker’s proposed budget cuts would cost him and his wife over $10,000 a year.  The Council is fighting the Governor’s move to “strip government workers of union rights in the first state to grant them more than a half-century ago” with on-the-ground and social media strategies, including a facebook page, which more than 5,000 people have joined.
