Despite years of saying Right to Work was not his priority and would never get to this desk, Gov. Walker will sign Right to Work Monday, March 9.
Despite weeks of protest from citizens, business owners and people of faith, Gov. Walker is once again putting his political ambitions ahead of what is best for the people of Wisconsin. By weakening unions, Right to Work lowers wages for everyone, hurts the middle class and depresses down our whole economy. We know that strong unions allow for a strong middle class and lift wages and working conditions for everyone in our state.
Email Gov. Walker now and tell him not to sign Right to Work into law.
Right to Work is wrong for Wisconsin. It does not create jobs, but it will lower wages, decrease safety standards and weaken the middle class. In a time when wages are stagnant , income inequality is rising and good jobs are hard to find, right to work is not the policy Wisconsin lawmakers need to advance.

Brothers and sisters, we can be proud of the fight back we accomplished. Thousands of workers, union and non-union, came to Madison to oppose Right to Work. We participated in our democratic process and made our voices heard. Now, we must continue to hold politicians accountable to the people, not to their out-of-state special interest campaign donors.
Forward, together in solidarity,
Phil Neuenfeldt, President AFL-CIO
