CALL OUT:  Workers and community members from across Wisconsin are gearing up to make their voices heard and participate in democracy this week at the Capitol in order to halt anti-worker Right to Work legislation. 

Here’s a list of events:
10:00 a.m. Tuesday, February 24:  The Senate Labor Committee will hear public testimony from concerned citizens starting at 10:00 a.m. at a to be announced room and lasting until testimony is finished.  Please join by coming to testify to tell your elected officials how Right to Work will hurt your family, your business, your workplace and your community.
12:00 p.m. Tuesday, February 24
:  Rally on the State Street side of the Capitol.  Testimony will continue against Right to Work during and after the rally. 
12:00 p.m. Wednesday, February 25:  Rally on the State Street side of the Capitol in Madison. 

Our elected representatives need to hear that the public is against Right to Work legislation.  Right to Work is wrong for all Wisconsin families.  Right to work will not create jobs and will lower wages for all workers – making it harder for hard-working families to reach the American Dream.

Stand up for the middle class. Stand up against Right to Work.  See you in Madison this week!
