Baby and Dad battle brain cancer, now the Senate

Maggie and Ryan Link should have been enjoying their newlywed years as young, new parents. Instead, this hard-working family faced the battle of their lives: brain cancer for both Ryan and their baby son, Nathan. Now, the family is once again in the fight of their lives, this time against Congress as legislators threaten their health care. Call your Senators at 877-607-0785. Make sure to tell them who you are, where you’re from and to oppose the health care bill.

ALEC is NOT OK

The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) is a corporate-driven organization that works behind closed doors to develop laws that serve their funders' interests. The "model legislation" they produce is introduced by state-level lawmakers who assume the ideas as their own. The bills are predictably self-serving: limiting workers' rights, restricting our ability to vote, undercutting safety on the job and more. When ALEC held their spring task force meeting in Oklahoma City in early May, the Steelworkers were there to shed light on this distortion of democracy. Joining with other union members and progressive allies, nearly a thousand people marched and rallied saying "ALEC is NOT OK!"
