Wisconsin teachers held a rally Friday evening at the state Capitol in Madison. Saturday, the teachers plan a rally in Milwaukee. This is all as a show of solidarity with Chicago Public School teachers.
The offering of moral support doesn't end in Milwaukee. Teachers' unions around the state of Wisconsin are organizing buses to head to Chicago on Saturday to participate as what's being referred to as a “Wisconsin-style” rally.
“Wisconsin was the center of the national fight over union rights last year when Republican Gov. Scott Walker proposed effectively ending collective bargaining rights for teachers and other public workers,” according to the Associated Press report.
