When Governor Walker attacked the rights of public workers to bargain collectively, he began an assault on all workers. He was caught on tape telling a wealthy supporter he wants to "divide and conquer'' working people.

I believe in the right to bargain collectively. Union rights were hard won and sometimes paid for in the blood of working people. Union advances created standards such as the 40-hour work week and paid time off for all workers. Negotiation is a good thing.
