Madison, WI - Thousands of people spent the day rallying against so-called ‘Right to Work’ legislation, Feb. 24. The anti-worker law could pass the legislature as early as next week.

Workers flooded the inside Capitol rotunda in a scene reminiscent of 2011, when tens of thousands of workers surrounded and occupied the state Capitol to fight a union-busting bill aimed against public sector workers.

"I'm really happy people are fighting back against this latest attack. We just saw dramatic cuts to our education system and an awful budget for working people. We need to fight," commented Tracey Pollock, who drove down from Milwaukee to join the protest.

Sponsored by the Wisconsin State AFL-CIO, another rally is scheduled in front of the state Capitol tomorrow, Feb. 25, at noon.
