I've sent an invitation to the Laborers Local 477 in Springfield Illinois with whom I am a member in hopes of spreading the word that we need to get this on the ballot. Without this legislation, we will surely lose the living wage, safe work environment, well earned retirement, and the voice as a whole that we take for granted as always being there. Let there be no mistake, there are forces at work to pull apart unions and take away the power that we only gain by standing as one.
I'd like to thank the one's who have added their signature for the cause. For those, like myself, who are aware of the degradation of workers rights everywhere and would like to ensure our future here in Illinois, I ask that we invite any and all friends who would be affected by the lack of workers rights. In my estimation that would include every man, woman, and child. Anyone who works for a living, is currently retired, or hopes for a future for their children.
