Wisconsin budget protests swell
Wisconsin state senators are expected to reconvene Friday as lawmakers wrangled over a bill that would strip teachers and other public employees of most of their collective bargaining rights and cut their benefits.
Meanwhile, a self-described "nationwide grassroots movement dedicated to creating ... jobs" will hold a "cheesehead" rally in New York on Friday to show support for Wisconsin workers.
"Let's show our support for workers in Wisconsin, New York and across the USA!" said a statement from the Job Party, which plans to march near CNN, NBC and Fox along 6th Avenue in Manhattan.
