Act 10 had a profoundly negative impact on state, Pocan tells Iowa legislators
In the video below, U.S. Representative Mark Pocan (D-Wisconsin) delivers a message to Iowa legislators about the negative consequences to Wisconsin workers and families from Act 10. Iowa is considering a similar law, and Governor Walker as traveled to Iowa to promote it. Pocan, however, says Act 10 – which eliminated the right of educators and other public service workers to collectively negotiate over students’ learning environment, their working conditions and their ability to provide for their families – has had a profoundly negative impact on schools, unions, worker rights, and the state’s overall economy.
