Matthew Rothschild has a new book: Twelve Ways to Save Democracy in Wisconsin. He joined Monday Buzz Host Brian Standing on September 20, 2021.
Wisconsin was once known as a laboratory for democracy and good government. From the first kindergarten classes, the first Worker’s Compensation laws, same-day voter registration, and nonpartisan legislative institutions, the Badger State for many years led the nation in civic-minded reforms. Now, however, Wisconsin is best known across the country for reactionary policies such as public sector union busting, Voter ID regulations, racial segregation and the most partisan gerrymandering in the country. Matt Rothschild is the Executive Director of the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign and the author of a new book, “Twelve Ways to Save Democracy in Wisconsin.”
