Organized labor scored a big victory, using a big budget, in the battle to repeal Senate Bill 5 in Ohio. In Wisconsin, labor is mobilizing to repeal the governor after he led efforts to curb unions. On the next Sound of Ideas, we'll look at the influence labor still has on politics, despite dwindling membership over the years. We'll talk about money and mobilization and we'll examine continuing efforts to curb labor's influence. Join us, Monday at 9 on 90.3.
