      MADISON, Wisconsin (Reuters) - Up to , people protested at the Wisconsin state Capitol on Saturday against a new law curbing the union rights of public workers that is seen as one of the biggest challenges in decades facing U.S. organized : James B. Kelleher.   The so-called right-to-work law prevents organized labor from forcing all workers to pay union dues, making Wisconsin the 25th state to adopt such a : Monica Davey.

      Labor unions represent just percent of America’s private-sector workers and percent of workers overall. That’s the lowest percentage in .   The following post was the basis for a talk by Leo Casey, the Executive Director of the Albert Shanker Institute, which was delivered at “The Future of American Labor” conference held February 8th and 9th in Washington, D.C. There is every reason to celebrate the “Teacher Spring” strikes of and the more recent strikes in Los Angeles and Chicago’s charter schools.

But organized labor remains central to the Democratic coalition, even as their numbers have thinned. In election after election, and campaign after campaign, unions have remained loyal friends to the party of FDR.

Newspapers too, such as the Milwaukee Journal, joined in targeting unions and labor leaders seen as radical or Communists. Over time many such leaders were displaced, and the model of social movement unionism, where it existed, faded in favor of a more conservative and politically orthodox business union model.

On this Labor Day, we talk with Wisconsin AFL-CIO President Phil Neuenfeldt about the state of organized labor, including a new report showing working.

Opponents cast the bill as an assault on organized labor and blue-collar workers that would limit union revenues. Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis and leaders from organized labor rallied to support Wisconsin workers and noted how this is part of the greater fight to steal workers rights not only there, but all across the country.

However, with the bad news out of Wisconsin they also saw hope as Democrats rallied and showed unity for the first time in a while. The study found that the percentage of households in the middle class dropped in all 50 states, with Wisconsin’s drop from percent to percent being the most significant.

Moreover, Wisconsin saw a 14 percent decline in median household income. The study of labor history itself also began in Wisconsin when University of Wisconsin economist John R.

Neuenfeldt, who was given the title president emeritus by the union, had been battling cancer. Second, the phrase “Big Labor” implies that organized labor is still big. It was certainly big in the s, when unions represented 35 percent of the workforce, when labor leaders Jimmy Hoffa, Walter Reuther, and George Meany were household names, and when threats of a nationwide truckers’ or auto workers’ strike spurred a sense of.

From the delegations of union members from as far away as Los Angeles to the workers in Cairo who bought Ian’s Pizza for delivery to protesters, it was clear that Madison was seen internationally as a key test of labor’s resolve in the face of anti-worker attacks and part of an international rebellion against overreaching leaders.Wisconsin: Packers Back the Protesters.
