Unions and Collective bargaining


There is a confrontation going on in Wisconsin (2011). Governor Scott Walker is trying to enact legislation that would limit bargaining rights for most public employees in that state ... firefighters, teachers, police, child-care workers, and more. In response to this, state employees have been picketing in Madison for 2 weeks. Labor unions in this country have been responsible for safety standards, the minimum wage, fair employment practices, and more. In Brian's latest data activity, students calculate for themselves who is better paid and by what percent. They are asked to consider which salaries are below the poverty level and to hypothesize how those salaries affect the daily lives of workers and their families.

There is no solution for this activity.
