In Solidarity, Local Unions Rally In Boston, Springfield
Labor union members from across the U.S. are rallying today in support of Wisconsin's embattled state workers. Wisconsin's new Republican Governor Scott Walker is trying to strip public employees of their bargaining rights. Hundreds are expected to gather at the Massachusetts State House in Boston and at City Hall in Springfield later this afternoon. The Massachusetts Teachers Association is among the Bay State unions organizing today’s rallies and their president Paul Toner joins us to explain why solidarity is important.
