State Fair 2012

Thanks for your work this year as one of more than 90 volunteers at AFSCMEís State Fair kiosk.

AFSCME volunteers have a level of commitment and energy that they bring to the Fair that is second to none.

 Thank you!

In total, AFSCME gave away a record 7,000 ďTax the RichĒ buttons and just as many wallet cards.

AFSCME volunteers got 2,000 fair-goers to sign cards urging legislators to fix the stateís out-of-whack tax system.

Millionaires and big corporations still donít pay their fair share of taxes.

That means the rest of us get stuck paying more.
