MILWAUKEE FAST-FOOD AND RETAIL WORKERS TO JOIN 150-CITY STRIKE THURSDAY

Exactly one year after state’s first strike, movement for $15 and a union stronger, wider

MILWAUKEE – As support grows across the globe, local workers will walk off their jobs Thursday, joining a 150-city, nationwide strike wave.  Many workers participated in the city’s four previous one-day strikes in 2013.  Workers from 30 other countries plan to support the strikers’ call for $15 an hour and the right to form a union without retaliation.

John Does - Then Doesn't - Then Does again

So it's been one of those weeks when you could miss a lot by blinking.  First John Doe II was on.  Then it was off,  Now it's sort of back on again, except for what isn't.  It's one of those events that's going to make me crazy if I hear one more conservative complain about "activist judges".  Actually I am a little too exasperated to even write about it, but fortunately the good folk over at the Center for Media and Democracy have done a better job of following this than I could.  So go visit them.
