Potawatomi tribe opposes plans by Menominee for Kenosha casino
But... what about workers' rights?
Is there a reason not one single progressive in Wisconsin has raised their voices objecting to another 3,000 casino workers being forced to work in loud, noisy, smoke-filled casinos at poverty wages and without any rights under state and federal labor laws as a bunch of corrupt tribal politicians conspire with a bunch of mobsters who own all the slot machines and table games run off with the profits as most Native Americans are forced further into the abyss of racist, genocidal poverty?
Has silence in the face of this kind of massive injustice become a characteristic of what passes for "progressivism" in Wisconsin?
