"I wasn't able to go to the rallies in DC (last Wednesday) because I was in a congressional committee meeting where Republicans were pushing a bill designed to weaken, and maybe ultimately destroy federal unions," writes AFSCME Council 26 Executive Director Carl Goldman. "Afterwards I had to jump in a taxi to go back to my office to write an email to update the 17 local union presidents I work with. First we drove by the Supreme Court where folks were gathering to protest, next I passed the Department of Labor where people were gathering for the "Women Workers Rising" rally and then onto the park next to the Canadian Embassy where a stage was set up and more folks were waiting to speak out. Seeing all of this reminded me of the connection between all of our struggles and made me feel a little better after the hearing on the Hill."
