Monday, September 2, 2019 is Labor Day in the United States. The last several decades have been tough ones for organized labor, as union membership and revenues have declined across the country. Here in Wisconsin, it’s been eight years since former governor Scott Walker “dropped the bomb” on public workers, stripping them of collective bargaining rights and their “fair share” dues from non-members. The results have been devastating, and even a new labor-friendly governor can’t turn things around by himself. There are some signs of life, though, if not a renaissance. Neil Rainford, Kettle Moraine District representative for the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (otherwise known as AFSCME) joined Monday Buzz host Brian Standing for a Labor Day update.
