EJS President Eva Paterson joined unions and supporters yesterday during their “We Are One” march through downtown San Francisco to protest attacks on public sector unions in Wisconsin and other states, and budget priorities favoring baliouts for banks and cutbacks in public services. It was one of hundreds of rallies around the U.S. on the same day, protesting attacks on unions.
Eva joined Stephanie Bloomingdale, secretary-treasurer of the Wisconsin State AFL-CIO in recalling that April 4 marked the anniversary of the assassination of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., who was killed while supporting a strike of public employees – garbage workers in Memphis, Tennessee.
