Minneapolis Workers Rally In Support Of Wisconsin


Minneapolis workers and citizens rallied on Monday in support of their fellow union workers protesting in Madison, Wisconsin. While the political picture in Minnesota does not look quite as contentious — what with Democrat Mark Dayton in the governor’s office, those in attendance rallied to send the message that legislation similar to that of Wisconsin’s budget bill could happen in any state.
