Text of the Letter

The text of the letter is below:[1]

"Open Letter In Support of Wisconsin Legislators:
At a time of historic income inequality and job losses in America, conservatives have launched a destructive ideological attack targeting the rights of workers in statehouses across the nation. As state legislators, we, the undersigned, stand in solidarity with our colleagues in Wisconsin who are currently fighting this effort and ensuring that their constituents’ voices are heard.
Taking away the hard-won rights of nurses and bus drivers and teachers does nothing to create jobs, rebuild the economic prosperity of our states, or strengthen our families.
As legislators representing vastly different constituencies in states across the country, we join together to voice our shared desire to work in a constructive manner with all relevant parties to advance a vision for our nation’s future that truly ensures the economic security of our communities."
