Often during the Wisconsin pro-union protests this past week, the mantra heard from crowds and Wisconsin Democratic legislators is that their demands are only about losing collective bargaining power and “not about money.”
I took photos on Sunday afternoon in Madison, Wisconsin, and the signs of protesters show that their concerns are only about money. These themes on the signs amounted to: tax the rich, don’t cut education funding, corporations paying a fair share, no tax breaks for businesses, and no bailout on the backs of unions.
Below is a photo gallery of these signs that show the pro-union protesters are only talking about money:
These signs only reek of money concerns, and if many thousands gather to protest and anti-war themes are nowhere to be found, the motivation is more than likely about their money.
