This photo was taken in January 2011 during the “Recall Scott Walker” protests in Madison, WI. I chose this photo because many people in Wisconsin view Scot Walker as the one who has “waged war on the middle class.” This picture shows a bunch of middle class union folks fighting to keep the rights and resources they have.
