Rhode Island's Twelfth has a posting by Eileen Spillane that lays the Chair of the Republican Party in RI out for his continuing anti-worker, anti-union rhetoric. Well worth the read.
One only needs to read the paper every morning to see the brutal, inhumane, and unconscionable attacks by Gov. Carcieri, who leads the republicans in this state, on our working-class, the poor, and RI's labor unions.
Carcieri doesn't remember that without labor unions, and how they integrated Irish, Italian, and other immigrants into the economy of this state, and this country, immigrants from the early 20th and late 19th century, our grandparents, would still be living in inner city walkups without heat, plumbing or security. Thank god for labor unions.
