    I saw the same TV news report on the Kenosha action in 3 different parts of the state. The Milw. area, Green Bay and Wausau areas.  Did a bit of traveling on Fri.  It was basically the same report with Walmart mgmt. saying this was the act of union activists and "everything is fine".  The Overhead Light Brigade was out at Kenosha with a "Respect workers" message that looked great and probably why the story appeared in the different areas of the state.  What I think really matters the most is that the word is getting out there that workers deserve a fair wage and that retail monoliths like Walmart need to be aware of what is going on because actually this nationwide action is not just the result of "Union activists" but thier own employees speaking up for themselves.
