  •  Thank you for the beautiful reality check, Wendi! (10+ / 0-)

    I was in the same boat as you when shit hit the fan in Wisconsin in February 2011 in that I wasn't overly familiar with the wide-ranging benefits of unions in modern day society.  I knew that my teachers, many of whom their leadership and inspiration had molded who I was as a person over 17 1/2 years of Wisconsin public schooling, were proud union members and that was about it.  I quickly received a crash course in the reality of what their fight, and the fight of all public workers and the labor movement in general, meant to my progressive belief system that I hold so dear.  As the story goes, the rest was history. :)  

    Thank you for laying out the questions you faced in such a revealing way and putting your experiences out there for the world to see.  

    Solidarity, Sister!!
