Unions plan Sat. protests in every state capital

A collection of prominent progressive groups and unions, including MoveOn.org and the Service Employees International Union, are working to organize rallies in every state capital at noon local time on Saturday. The demonstrations, organizers said, are to show solidarity with union workers in Wisconsin and to protest the cuts to wages and public services proposed by Republican governors throughout the country.Those planned protests come on the heels of the massive gatherings over the past week in Wisconsin, as well as similar demonstrations in Ohio, Indiana and other states where lawmakers are considering curbs on the collective bargaining power of unions.
