VIDEO: 'Workers are at the breaking point'

Thanks to blue cheddar for sharing this terrific (short) video by Erik of newsWISC. It shows popular Madison radio host John "Sly in the Morning" Sylvester of WTDY 1670 AM. (Sly's the guy who told Teamster Local 200 Secretary-Treasurer Tom Millonzi that he wanted the Teamster truck to move Walker's possessions out of the Governors Mansion.)

In the video, Sly walks past protesters at last night's rally against Scott Walker, who was visiting a sweatshop for a 45th anniversary gala. Sly explains about the air conditioning being piped in that night for Walker. Then says they've ruined the event!

blue cheddar helped expose the conditions at the sweatshop, called Opportunities Inc. Read her whole post about last night's protest here. And hear from the mistreatment of workers at Opportunitiies Inc. here.
