Bargaining for the USA: Time for a Main Street Contract for the American People

By Rose Ann DeMoro, Executive Director, National Nurses United, AFL-CIO. The ongoing battles in the streets and capitols in Madison, Columbus, Lansing, Indianapolis, and other American cities make it clear that the lines are no longer just drawn, they are exposed. There are two Americas. One where Wall Street gets bailouts, and another where public schools and safety net programs get slashed.

The War on Women's Health

By Deborah Burger, RN and Co-President National Nurses United. The far right and their representatives in Congress and many state houses sure have a unique way of celebrating the centennial anniversary of International Women's Day. News that the Texas House of Representatives last week approved a bill, already passed by the state Senate, to force women seeking an abortion to first get an ultrasound test is one of a number of attacks on women's health in the works.

The past two weeks have been a "Where's Waldo" moment for President Obama.

Just Say No - no more cuts for workers

By Rose Ann DeMoro, Executive Director, National Nurses United, AFL-CIO. There should be two lasting lessons to emerge from the heroic labor-led protests in Wisconsin. First, working people--with our many allies, students, seniors, women's organizations, and more--are inspired and ready to fight. Second, we need to send a clear and unequivocal message to the right-wing politicians and those in the media suggesting further concessions from working people.
