Rally to support Maine workers
Posted by on

This week the legislature is holding hearings on the Governor's proposed budget cuts, which will profoundly impact Maine's public employees.

This year, workers are under attack from many angles-- right to work for less, attacks on public sector workers, and a number of attempts to rollback worker rights & protections. The Governor has already disbanded the Task Force on Misclassification. That group was making real progress in fighting the 1099 scams plaguing the construction industry. In order to fight back these attacks, we all have to stand together in solidarity.
