This topic is endorsed by The Writings of African-Americans (TWOAA) by Tres Mali Scott.

The most protected “human rights” issues in the U.S. is labor. Labor Union is the American English term that comes from Trade Union, a British English term.

A labor union is  legal representation of workers banded together for common goals. This concept originated to end mistreatment  and underpayment of employees during the Industrial Revolution. Also to maintain and improve employment conditions.

Recently, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker has officially taken away nearly all collective bargaining rights from the vast majority of the state’s public employees.

Walker signed the bill to do so privately Friday morning. He planned an afternoon news conference in the Capitol.
