Although it was a rainy start to Saturday in much of Wisconsin, there was no stopping recall volunteers from taking to the streets or picking up a phone to talk with fellow union members about recalling Scott Walker, Rebecca Kleefisch and four anti-worker state Senators on June 5.
In Duluth, Eau Claire, Fond du Lac, Green Bay, Horicon, La Crosse, Madison, Menasha, Milwaukee, Racine, Sheboygan, and Wausau union members were out in full force having one-on-one conversations with fellow Wisconsinites.
A retired nurse from the VA hospital, Pedraza was volunteering with her union Wisconsin Federation of Nurses and Health Professionals (WFNHP).
“I’m here because we need to recall Scott Walker. If he stays in office, tens of thousands of poor people will lose their health care," said Pedraza. "Besides for being amoral, in terms Scott Walker should understand, this is not cost effective for our state.”
“I support Tom Barrett because he will stand up for Wisconsin. He will stand up for our nurses and for health care rights. Tom Barrett will be an advocate for working people,” said Pearce.
Maryan Torres explained that “as a Milwaukee County nurse Scott Walker has taken away my right to collectively bargain with my employer and that is why I am working to recall. We have lost our contract, we have lost our voice at work and we have lost our ability to speak out on behalf of our patients to improve their care.”
“I want to recall Scott Walker because we need jobs," said Behote. "Under Scott Walker, Wisconsin is dead last in job creation. We need Tom Barrett because we need more jobs.”
Offices will be open Memorial Day and everyday through June 5! Hours are 9:00 am to 8:00 pm Monday through Saturday and noon to 7:00 p.m on Sunday.
