After weeks of enormous demonstrations in Wisconsin, Ohio, Indiana as well as other states, people from all walks of life challenged Republican governors attempting to weaken workers' rights. Union activists protested across the country on April 4 in what they called “We Are One” rallies. Over 1,000 protests, teach-ins and other events marked the day 43 years ago when Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated in Memphis, Tenn. The civil rights leader was in Memphis to support the city’s unionized sanitation workers who were on strike for fair wages and treatment.  Story continues

One day after the first anniversary on which President Obama signed his controversial health care reform bill, the Affordable Care Act, into law, Vermont’s House of Representatives voted to establish the first single payer health care system in the United States. If the state Senate adopts the single-payer bill, as expected and it’s signed by Vermont’s Democratic Gov. Peter Shumlin, who supports the bill, all Vermonters will have access to heath insurance that supporters say will contain costs.  Story continues
