    Last year Governor LePage promised that he would be “the next Scott Walker in this country” because, he said, he was “challenging the status quo”. He did find himself alongside Walker on the Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington list of “The Worst Governors in America” that year.

    With both Governor’s re-election campaigns now in full swing, a presentation at UMaine last week took us back to Wisconsin in 2011 – 2 years before LePage predicted he’d be the next Scott Walker.

    The presenter was Professor Don Taylor of the School for Workers at the University of Wisconsin. Professor Taylor has worked in labor organizing for more than 15 years and has been published in labor journals. His talk was called “This Is What Democracy Looks Like: The Wisconsin Labor Uprising”

    (**NOTE: In addition to the archived WERU News Report program, we have also archived the full version of the presentation, which is approx 1hr 15mins in length)

    This lecture was part of the Marxist & Socialist Studies Lecture Series at the University of Maine, which is also sponsored by Maine Peace Action Committee, the Division of Student Affairs, and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. These lectures have been held every semester since 1987.
