Nev. Rally Supports Fight vs. Wis. Anti-Union Bill

By  | 

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - More than 100 protesters turned out in Carson City to support thousands of public workers who've set up camp at the Wisconsin Capitol to fight Republican-backed legislation aimed at weakening unions.

The Nevada Appeal of Carson City reports protesters waved signs in front of the Legislative Building on Saturday and chanted "Money for Kids, not for Koch."

The latter referred to billionaires Charles and David Koch, who have donated money to Republicans leading the anti-union effort.

Union supporters organized rallies from New York to Los Angeles in a show of solidarity Saturday as the demonstration in Madison entered its 12th straight day.
