Assignment: Union protests
iREPORTERS SIGNED UP
Created February 17, 2011 by
Thousands have turned out for weeks at the Wisconsin capitol building, and elsewhere in the state, to protest a bill --- recently signed into law --- that removes most of the collective bargaining rights from teachers and other public employees and increase their contributions for benefits.
Similar protests have taken place since then in states like Ohio and Indiana. The demonstrations have sparked a national conversation about the role of unions in government and business.
