Wisconsin State AFL-CIO Statement 3/9

Phil Neuenfeldt, president of the Wisconsin State AFL-CIO, also released a statement on the Senate's vote Wednesday night.

"Senate Republicans have exercised the nuclear option to ram through their bill attacking Wisconsin's working families in the dark of night. Walker and the Republicans acted in violation of state open meetings laws, and tonight's events have demonstrated they will do or say anything to pass their extreme agenda that attacks Wisconsin's working families," Neuenfeldt said in the statement. "Tonight's trampling of the democratic process in Wisconsin shows that Scott Walker and the Republicans have been lying throughout this entire process and we have been telling the truth -- that NONE of the provisions that attacked workers' rights had anything to do with the budget."  (Source)
