Michigan To The Rescue 18.6.2018 Crooks Liars
Blue America has endorsed 2 women running for Congress in Michigan with proven records for leadership in the state legislature, Rashida Tlaib and Ellen Lipton. We endorsed them both because they are progressives-- with outstanding progressive records of accomplishment. Identity politics played no role in either endorsement.

Tom Williams/CQ Roll Call via AP Images Hilary O. Shelton, director of the NAACP's Washington bureau, outside the Supreme Court as the Court heard arguments in Janus v. AFSCME Council 31 in February.  In the last decade, an increasingly energized campaign against workers’ rights has been waged across all levels of government—federal, state, and local. Much of the focus of this anti-worker campaign has been on public-sector workers, specifically state and local government workers. Several states have  passed legislation  restricting workers’ right to unionize and collectively bargain for better wages and benefits. Beyond these legislative attacks, public-sector workers have been targeted by repeated legal challenges to their unions’ ability to effectively represent them.  The Supreme Court will soon issue a decision in the most recent of these challenges, Janus v. AFSCME Council 31. Our new Economic Policy Institute report  argues  that the decision in Januswill have significant impacts on public-sector ...
