On March 8, 2011, Tim Judson, Workers' Rights Policy Specialist for
Progressive States Network, joined workers from Wisconsin, Ohio, and
Indiana and experts from around the nation in testifying at a House Democratic Steering and Policy Committee hearing

attacks "a full-scale campaign to dismantle the very foundations of
America’s social and moral progress over the last century," and
highlighting the responsible, progressive alternatives being advanced in
