30 supporters of workplace abuse legislation — and climbing

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

These 30 state legislators have already committed to co-sponsoring the workplace anti-abuse Healthy Workplace Bill, to be championed by Senator Paul Feeney (D-Bristol Norfolk) and Rep. Russell Holmes (D-Boston) next session starting in January. (Compare this number to the 49 sponsors we had last session, and we still have another month before the next session begins.)

Senator Vinny deMacedo (R-Plymouth and Barnstable)
