Why is local 215 doing this?
It is well known in the State of Wisconsin that Local 215 Milwaukee Fire Department supported Scott Walker during his run for govenor.
What may not be so well known NOW is that Local 215 is contributing money to the Republican State senators who are being recalled. These include Scott Fitzgerald R-Juneau, Van Wanggaard R-Racine, Terry Moulton R-Cihppewa Falls, and Pam Gallowy R-Wausau. They have also donated $3000 to Glenn Grothman R-West Bend.
What possible motive could they have for this? Not a single one of these Republicans serve Milwaukee. Why would they support candidates that are opposed to, and in fact voted against, collective bargaining? These same candidates have voted in favor of measures that have hurt public employees. It is BRUTALLY obvious these Republicans are anti-labor and will do what ever they can to destroy organized labor and the rights fought so had to win.
Something just isn't right here and if you look closely at the facts you will see it too.
