Solis: Govs. in Wis. and Ohio Want Workers to Give Up Their American Rights

by Tula Connell

The nations governors are meeting right now in Washington, D.C., for their annual conference. Well, not all of them. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is a no-show, preferring to make the rounds on the weekend television interview programs to explain away why he wants to take away the freedom of public employees to bargain for good middle-class jobs.

Since hes not there, well excerpt here the statement Labor Secretary Hilda Solis made this morning when meeting with the governors. Because he needs to hear it. And Ohio John Kaisch, whos right on the heels of Walker in his attacks on nurses, teachers and EMTs, needs to hear again what Solis has to say.

Ive been following the developments in Wisconsin, and Ohio, and many other states across the country.

<...>

And weve seen our brothers and sisters in the public employees unions willing to give there share, and to negotiate in good faith to help their states get through tough times.

But the governors in Wisconsin and Ohio arent just asking workers to tighten their belts, theyre demanding that they give up their uniquely American rights as workers.

<...>

All these workers want is the opportunity to sit down at the table, like grown ups, and work together to solve problems.

Thats what collective bargaining is all about.
