Governor Rauner’s anti-middle class “Turnaround Agenda” will be a topic for discussion in various places in Illinois this week. It’s hard to know all of the places it will be considered  because the resolution’s advocates know that, when the language is analyzed, support for the attack on working people seems to evaporate.

Here’s what we know about for Tuesday and Wednesday (thanks IL AFL-CIO)

Tuesday, May 5 – Grundy County Board Legislative & VAC committee 4:30pm at the Grundy County Administration Building located at 1320 Union Street in Morris.
