La Baguette Pays up After Picket

The Workers' Rights Center held a picket at La Baguette on the westside of Madison on Tuesday, June 3.  Two weeks ago, a former cook from the French bakery on the far west side, came to the WRC because his employer said he would not give him his last check because he didn't give two weeks' notice when he quit. When the WRC staff person called the business, the owner acknowledged that they were not paying the worker his last two weeks' pay because he did not give them enough notice. 

If I Had a Trillion Dollars Trainings

Between February and May WNPJ did trainings with multiple youth organizations in Madison and Milwaukee where they got a chance to create their own federal discretionary budget and discuss the priorities of their communities.  This was part of a broader effort to encourage youth to make a video about what they would do with $1 Trillion if the could spend it on their communities.

Conservation Congress mining resolutions win big!

Resolutions calling on the state to repeal the 2013 iron mining law, refuse any mining permits to Gogebic Taconite on state constitutional grounds, and undertake greater monitoring and oversight of air emissions at frac sand mines were each introduced by citizens at the Conservation Congress Spring Hearings in more than a third of Wisconsin's 72 counties, and passed by at least a 2:1 margin statewide! This huge success was due to the efforts of dozens of people around the state--many of whom had never been to a Conservation Congress hearing before this year--coordinated by WNPJ and the Sierra Club.
