Wisconsin: A Blueprint For More Workers, by Ike Brannon and Andrew Hanson, visiting fellows at the Badger Institute.

From the Conclusion:

"Wisconsin’s historically low unemployment rate has led some to fear that a shortage of workers may constrain the state’s future economic growth. The state’s labor force participation rate is significantly lower than where it was the last time unemployment was this low, something that is true for the rest of the country as well. ..."

Law and Social Movements: Reimagining the Progressive Canon

Scott L. Cummings at Wisconsin Law Review.
"This Article examines the “progressive legal canon”—iconic legal campaigns to advance progressive causes—and explores the implications of canon construction and critique for the study of lawyers and social movements. Looking backward, it reflects on why specific cases, like Brown v. Board of Education and Roe v. Wade, have become fundamental to progressive understandings of the role that lawyers play in social movements and how those cases have come to stand for a set of warnings about lawyer and court overreach. It then explores what might be gained from constructing a contemporary progressive legal canon and under what criteria one would select cases for inclusion. A core contribution of the Article is to synthesize examples of significant contemporary campaigns that respond to original canon concerns and complicate notions of lawyering in current movements of social import around labor, the War on Terror, LGBT rights, immigrant rights, and racial justice."
