    The protests also promise to shed light on the reality of life for working families in the city of Indianapolis. Unemployment is at 13.3 percent, with unemployment for African-American families at 21 percent.

    Two of every five African-American families with a child under 5 live below the anemic poverty line. Such pain amidst the gloss of the Super Bowl and the prospect of right-to-work legislation is, for many, a catalyst to just do something.

    I have a question. Why is the fact that unemployment is so high in Indiana the result of a bill that just passed this week? Did the businesses fire all those poor black people so they could hire whites that work for less money after they busted the unions?

    It's all about busting unions,cutting wages and impacting the quality of life.

    Not good for rebuilding the economy.

    How many want to work for less?

    Why should union people work for less?

    This is not just about breaking down wages for unions it is across the board!

    And this has to do with a brand new bill, how?


    I guess everyone (except for the evil rich) is a victim in the liberal universe.
