Solidarity!


From our friends at Working Michigan:

Workers from across Michigan and across the nation are gearing up for a Day of Action in Lansing on Tuesday. Tomorrow, you can show support for Michigan’s working families from wherever you are.

It’s very simple: Wear RED on Monday, December 10, to show your support for Michigan’s working families. Share the photo above on your Facebook wall to let your friends and family know that you we’re all in this together.

Politicians backed by corporate special interests king Dick DeVos, and Governor Rick Snyder are plotting to destroy the state that labor built by pushing through this last minute so-called “Right to Work” legislation. The only thing it provides for is the eroding of workers’ power and voices in the workplace.

Show your friends and family that you stand in solidarity with Michigan's working families, and against the anti-worker policies of Governor Snyder. Click HERE to share this photo on Facebook today and let your friends and family know why you will be wearing red on tomorrow.

Fired up!

Bonus: Here's the latest graphical meme by my wife, Anne C. Savage, inspired by State House Rep. Brandon Dillon's fiery floor speech last week (if you haven't seen it yet, click through):

Also, if you haven't already, please sign our petition to say NO! to Right to Work for Less in Michigan and share with your progressive friends and networks:

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
