Hey Wisconsin- Like Weekends??

From WI AFL-CIO Feb 25, 2014

The 7-Day Work Week Bill, Assembly Bill 667, has been introduced in the state Senate as Senate Bill 508. The Assembly Labor Committee held a hearing on AB667 on February 12, but did not vote the bill out of committee yet.  This bill would roll back the clock on worker rights and create an environment where workers are intimidated and pressured into working 7-days a week, every week, all year.  It is expected that legislators will vote on this ludicrous bill in the coming days or weeks.  This is a direct attack on workplace safety, families and communities.  For more click HERE
