LaCrosse, WI - On Feb. 15 over 400 workers, community members and their supporters mobilized in less than six hours to say no to Scott Walker, governor of Wisconsin as he showed up to speak at local plant. The governor had just proposed a ‘budget fix’ bill that would radically alter the political landscape in Wisconsin.

“He wants to take away our bargaining, or better yet, he wants to make our unions illegal,” said Joe Rox, an AFSCME member outside the Mannsted and Sons metal fabrication plant in downtown Lacrosse.
