ALEC is the corporate-funded organization behind Florida's deadly kill-at-will law (and similar ones in 23 other states) that resulted in the tragic shooting death of unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin. Yesterday, ALEC announced that it was suspending its task force on gun laws -- but it is still actively promoting policies that undermine the rights of average American citizens: bills that would repeal minimum wage and paid sick day laws, that would bust unions, privatize public land and gut public education, and more. ALSO: Tuesday was Equal Pay Day - which symbolizes the Wage Gap, demonstrating how far into 2012 women must work to earn what men earned in 2011. Republicans in Wisconsin have revoked their own Equal Pay laws, and one GOP Congressional candidate calls equal pay "a nuisance." MOMocrats Karoli, Cynematic and Donna Schwartz Mills will have something to say about that.
