Chicago's black voters key as Garcia battles to defeat Emanuel in mayoral race

Yahoo! National News - Mon, 03/02/2015 - 20:07

Chicago Mayoral candidate Jesus "Chuy" Garcia and his wife Evelyn arrive at a restaurant for lunch, on election day in ChicagoBy Mary Wisniewski and Tracy Rucinski CHICAGO (Reuters) - Winning more support from Chicago’s black community, which makes up about one third of the electorate, will be essential if Jesus “Chuy” Garcia is to cause one of the biggest political upsets of recent years by defeating incumbent Rahm Emanuel in a run-off and become Chicago’s first Hispanic mayor. He will need to overcome tensions between the black and Hispanic communities in the city, aggravated under the 22-year term of Mayor Richard M. Daley, which ended in 2011. There was a widespread perception in the black community that Hispanic supporters of Daley were favored in getting city jobs. A persistently high crime rate, the decision to close 50 schools in mostly poor areas, and a sense that Emanuel is out of touch with the community and its problems has hurt him among black voters, some political activists say.

Right-to-work legislation advances in Wisconsin statehouse

Yahoo! National News - Mon, 03/02/2015 - 20:04

Workers gather outside the State Capitol building in MadisonBy Brendan O'Brien MADISON, Wis. (Reuters) - A Wisconsin legislative panel was due on Monday to review a state Senate-passed bill that would allow private-sector employees to avoid joining a union or paying union dues even when working under union-negotiated contracts. The measure, which would make Wisconsin the 25th state to enact such a "right-to-work" law, has been cast by supporters as an incentive for keeping and attracting businesses and jobs, while unions brand it as a thinly disguised assault on organized labor. The legislation was narrowly approved on Wednesday by the Wisconsin Senate, which like the state Assembly is led by a Republican majority. Governor Scott Walker, a potential Republican presidential candidate, also supports the legislation.
