Statement of California Democratic Party Chairman John Burton on Protests by Wisconsin Public Employees in Response to Republican Governor Scott Walker's Anti-Worker Proposals

For Immediate Release: February 17, 2011


The governor of the state of Wisconsin today is reaping the results of the Republican Party’s relentless and shameless campaign to scapegoat public employees. Governor Walker’s approach is in fact standard Republican operating procedure: attack working people for the problems caused by Wall Street banks and financial speculators.

Stripping hard working men and women of their collective bargaining right is an unconscionable attack against all hard-working Americans, whether they belong to a union or not.
