UAW calls for protest at Troy GOP fundraiser with Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker

Walker faces a recall election in Wisconsin because of helping pass a law that stops requiring the state government to collectively bargain with its largest public employee unions.

Please go and protest. Walker is decimating our state. A car full of Democrats went to Michigan two days ago to help with a protest for jobs. Our states are in the same deep hole and we must support each other.
