Collective Bargaining Wins
This stamp was issued in 1975 to honor 40 years of the Wagner Act. It seems that for the last 40 years the Republicans have done everything in their power to try to roll back this legislation. They took a big blow in Ohio, where more than 60% of the state voted against Kasich's new bill that would have greatly restricted collective bargaining. It seems Americans are finally waking up to what is happening. Mississippians also rejected a bill that would have stated life begins at fertilization.
