One of the most important legacies of the Wisconsin uprising is the mobilization of a new wave of activists. Nearly 300 workers at  Palermo’s Pizza in Milwaukee are among this powerful new wave. Emboldened by the broader movement for workers’ rights in Wisconsin, they have joined together to raise standards for themselves and customers alike. Many of the workers had come to the United States to build better lives for themselves and their families, and their concern over unsafe working conditions and unfair treatment at the frozen pizza plant inspired a desire for a voice on the job.
