Scott Walker Video by New Left Media In this elegantly produced video of workers’ rights demonstrations in Madison and Columbus, New Left Media interviews protesters who have been locked out in the cold, as well as a Democratic state senator and former Democratic state congresswoman, officials from SEIU and AFSCME, organizers detailing the truth behind Wisconsin’s SB-11 and Ohio’s SB-5, and union members, police and assembly members who are willing to concede wages but won’t budge on collective bargaining rights. New Left Media also explores the GOP’s true motive for attacking union rights in Wisconsin, Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, Iowa, Tennessee and Florida — not to solve state deficits, but to undercut a primary funding source of the Democratic Party.
