John Nichols: The Power of Symbolism

A defining moment came early on in Wisconsin's struggle against Governor Scott Walker's decision to eliminate the organizing rights of public sector workers. Walker decided to exempt some workers, but not others, from the loss of pensions and collective bargaining rights, hoping to divide them. Instead, the opposite happened. Listen to John Nichols describe a stunning event where those whose rights remained intact stood up for those whose rights had not.
