General Strike in Wisconsin? Madison Firefighter Union President advocates for general strike, chaos as Assembly passes bill

The President of the Madison, Wisconsin Firefighters Union advocated for a general strike, saying the strike should go, "statewide, then nationwide."


Here is a Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Video from the Assembly floor as the bill passed to shouts of "Shame" from both the people in the gallery and the Democratic State Representatives.  The Rev. Jesse Jackson was also on the floor and can be seen in the video: http://bcove.me/4s3um1gx
