Workplace Issues Today: Chicago workers rally on Saturday

Thousands of workers gathered in Chicago on Saturday to show support for workers in Wisconsin and other sates around the country. The rally goers tied their event to the April 4th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr., and to other events around the country by chanting ‘we are one’. The rally was part of a national campaign being organized by the AFL-CIO and other groups, entitled “We Are One”. Illinois workers said that they were supporting workers around the country, and sending a message that they would not take it in Illinois.
