For the benefit of my US American blog visitors, I've collected a few news links with information about the present attack on the bargaining rights of labor unions.
To my mind, what's happening in Wisconsin, Ohio, Indiana, Idaho and elsewhere in the US where state governments are passing laws against collective bargaining is an attack against democracy itself. Accessing information, news and discussion about this is vital.
I begin with a few newslinks, and I will appreciate any contributions of further links to news media reflecting the struggle for democracy today and yesterday in the USA
