SEIU's Plan For The Coming Week - Protests EVERYWHERE

If you were thinking that the protests in Madison, Wisconsin just developed organically, think again.  There is a well coordinated machine operating in the background, handling details like sign printing, busing folks to and from the protest, as well as scheduling groups of various members to appear on a rotating basis. They have also developed a game plan for the week ahead, not just in Wisconsin but at state capitals across the country.

The country's second largest labor union, SEIU is helping the Wisconsin teachers as well as assisting in revving up potential protesters around the country.  This list was copied from their web page just today;

As a sidebar, here is a screen grab of CNN's online poll about the public's view of labor unions.

Almost 400,000 votes were counted by CNN's non-scientific survey.  The results show that SEIU's members might be better served working on improving their image with the public instead of organizing protests around the country.
