The Attack on Public Workers
with Andrew Porter, National Organizer of the Young Democratic Socialists (YDS)
When: Tuesday, October 25th at 8 PM
Where: Pearlman Lounge
Sponsored by Brandeis Labor Coalition
Occupy Wall Street has shown a new break through in class consciousness among the working and middle classes against the financial sector. Yet, the attacks on working people and organized labor has been going on for decades. But labor and its allies are fighting back – from occupations to Ohio. Andrew Porter, a native Ohioan, will discuss the recent efforts of YDS to work against Issue 2 – a ballot measure that would prevent public employees from bargaining for health care and pensions.
