More Problems with Medicaid

There's another story in the New York Times about the problems with privatized social services and Medicaid. It only furthers the point the Union has made that this work should be done in-house by state and city workers. 

May Day Is Coming Up!

May 1 is International Workers Day, and all workers should come out in solidarity against the 1 Percent's campaign of union-busting and austerity.
