As union protestors head to Wisconsin’s state capitol today and tomorrow, they will be met by police and bomb-sniffing dogs, according to USNews.com.
This week, a bill to change the state to a Right-to-Work state is being taken up on Tuesday, drawing union protestors back to Madison–the sight where, in 2011, tens of thousands protested Governor Scott Walker’s public-sector collective bargaining reforms.
The AFL-CIO, according to USNews, anticipates 800 people at the noontime protests planned for both Tuesday and Wednesday.
However, unlike the protests in 2011 when the Act 10 was put into place, police appear to be better prepared this time.
Two busloads of officers arrived Tuesday morning and spread out across the building, and a bomb-sniffing dog patrolled the hearing room.
