      From PennLive: What's with the GOP Legislature's war on public workers? By: Pennsylvania Lt. Governor Mike Stack In the Pennsylvania Senate, where I preside, we've witnessed several unfortunate attacks recently on public employees. A bill that would interfere with collective bargaining has passed, and several more are receiving serious consideration.
      The U.S. House and Senate will soon consider Fast Track legislation to help pass another bad trade deal. As history shows, fast track has been used to quickly pass some of our nation’s worst trade agreements. This time will no different. The TPP trade deal has been put together in secret. Hundreds of corporate lawyers and other special interest groups have been advising the U.S.
      Staples and the U.S. Postal Service have cut a deal that jeopardizes thousands of living-wage jobs – as well as your mail service. A no-bid deal between Staples and the Postal Service set up postal counters inside 82 of the office-supply stores in four test markets – staffed with untrained, low-wage Staples employees. Staples and the USPS plan to expand the program to Staples’ 1,500 locations nationwide.

      Too many big-box corporations are paying their workers poverty level wages.  They are setting an extremely low standard other companies follow.  On April 15, Local 1776 stood with the thousands of low-wage workers that rallied for $15 an hour and a Union.
      Governor Wolf's first budget address discussed historic ways to give Pennsylvania a fresh start. Wolf called for restoring school funding, rebuilding the middle class, taxing drillers and closing the Delaware loophole. Governor Wolf made a statement that directly affects the 3,500+ UFCW members who work in PA's Wine and Spirits Stores -- he called for the modernization (NOT privatization) of the PLCB to improve customer convenience and raise revenues for our State.
