Across Wisconsin working families took to the streets to educate their neighbors on the importance of the November 6 elections. Union workers and community members knocked on doors and made phone calls to Wisconsin voters explaining how President Obama and Tammy Baldwin will fight for the middle class and the 99% over the 1%.
Volunteers discussed jobs, economic issues, and stressed the importance of health care and retirement security for all.
In Eau Claire, Fond du Lac, Green Bay, Horicon, Janesville, Kenosha, La Crosse, Madison, Menasha, Milwaukee, Oshkosh, Racine, Superior, Wausau and Wisconsin Rapids, volunteers hit the ground with passion and energy to have the crucial one-on-one conversations which will make the difference this Election Day.
Paul Carrier, a member of AFT Local 212, explained that he was making phone calls to “help the cause and get out the vote on Election Day. Everyone needs to participate and take part in democracy.”
“This election is not just about labor rights, this is about moving our country forward, we can’t go back to the failed policies of the past with Mitt Romney. If we work hard, if we work together, we will elect Barack Obama and Tammy Baldwin into office on November 6. I know your plates are full but when you knock, when you make a phone call, you need to relay your passion and the importance of this election and get your friends and neighbors to the polls.”
