We want transparency in law enforcement. We want a full investigation to weed out racist police and judicial practices. Anyone who is found guilty of bigotry should be punished for slavery and treason. We want their e-mails and text messages to be read for evidence. This would include police officer…

MARTIN LUTHER KING

Most of you have no idea what Martin Luther King actually did by HamdenRice

So yes, Dr. King had many other goals, many other more transcendent, non-racial, policy goals, goals that apply to white people too, like ending poverty, reducing the war-like aspects of our foreign policy, promoting the New Deal goal of universal employment, and so on. But his main accomplishment was ending 200 years of racial terrorism, by getting black people to confront their fears.

So please don't tell me that Martin Luther King's dream has not been achieved, unless you knew what racial terrorism was like back then and can make a convincing case you still feel it today. If you did not go through that transition, you're not qualified to say that the dream was not accomplished.

FROM Wisconsin AFL-CIO
Brothers and Sisters,

Today we honor and celebrate the extraordinary life of Martin Luther King Jr. His courage, leadership, and ultimately his sacrifice, helped transform America and usher in a new era of civil rights.

He died fighting for the rights of workers, traveling to Memphis to support striking AFSCME sanitation workers on April 3rd, 1968; the following day he was assassinated.

But the progress he achieved – we achieved – is being threatened and attacked by those opposed to equality. They view the record turnout from minorities, women, and young people as a threat to their political power. They know that strong unions are the last obstacle remaining between them and their unchecked greed. They will continue to attack all of the progress and protections that we’ve fought for over the past few decades.

These latest attacks are “right to work” laws. Martin Luther King Jr. said of right to work laws, “In our glorious fight for civil rights, we must guard against being fooled by false slogans, such as ‘right to work.’ It is a law to rob us of our civil rights and job rights. Its purpose is to destroy labor unions and the freedom of collective bargaining by which unions have improved wages and working conditions of everyone…Wherever these laws have been passed, wages are lower, job opportunities are fewer and there are no civil rights.”

As it did half a century ago, Martin Luther King Jr’s wisdom provides us with a path forward. He understood that your right to form a union and collectively bargain with your coworkers is a fundamental pillar of the fight for equality. As he said himself, “The Labor Movement was the principal force that transformed misery and despair into hope and progress.”

So today, as we remember Martin Luther King Jr, we are also reminded of the challenges we continue to face as we strive to achieve his dream. Together, we’ll continue fighting for the rights, equality, and opportunity for all Americans, including the right of all Americans to join a labor union.

In Solidarity,

Phil Neuenfeldt
President, Wisconsin AFL-CIO

RIGHT TO WORK

The truth is that workers in RTW states make far less than workers in workplace fairness states. As of 2010, RTW state workers make an average of $5,538 a year less than workplace fairness states’ workers. Well, maybe it’s a fluke, right? Or maybe workplace fairness states had an historical advantage that is trending in favor of RTW states?

"A revolution is coming - a revolution which will be peaceful if we are wise enough; compassionate if we care enough; successful if we are fortunate enough - but a revolution which is coming whether we will it or not. We can affect its character; we cannot alter its inevitability." — Robert F. Kennedy, 1966
