The Wisconsin AFL-CIO is a labor union for workers in Wisconsin. During a protest in 2011 over a bill that would cut funding and prevent collective bargaining, Wisconsin native Carrie Worth designed the iconic image that is on this button. The fist has always been a symbol of protest, but this fist specifically is in the shape of Wisconsin with the white star marking the city of Madison; the state Capitol and where the protests took place. The logo, Stand for Wisconsin was meant as a call to the nation to stand up and stand with the Wisconsin workers.
