Pizza solidarity with Wisonsin workers

Over the past week, supporters from all over the world have been making donations to a pizza shop in Madison, Wisconsin to feed the union activists and their allies who have been protesting day in day out at the Capitol against governor Scott Walker’s plan to break the unions (not this Scott Walker). The pizza shop had to hire 11 additional staff to cope with demand.
Walker says he needs to cut public servants’ pay in order to balance the state budget, but in addition he wants to curtail organizing rights. His plan triggered massive protests which are now spreading to other US states that want to introduce anti-union legislation.
