Although National Media Spotlight is Gone, Progressive Mobilization Against Wis. Gov. Walker’s Conservative, Anti-union Agenda Continues
Interview with Ben Manski, coordinator of Wisconsin Wave , conducted by Scott Harris

Scott Walker’s legislation that would have all but eliminated public employee unions’ collective bargaining rights -- have tapered down in recent weeks.
