You’re gonna wanna watch this
“The road to justice must run through the South,” said MaryBe McMillan, secretary-treasurer of the NC State AFL-CIO when she spoke at the North Carolina NAACP’s “Witness Wednesday” event outside the state legislature.
“Our state is ground zero in this fight for fairness. This legislature, what they’ve done in a few months, is breathtaking,” MaryBe said. “The list of injustices is long.”
“But I think there is only one law you need to look at to understand how unjust, how callous, and how cruel this legislature can be. And that is the law that they passed making the most drastic cuts to unemployment benefits in United States history.”
