Milton Friedman Day Luncheon, featuring Mallory Factor
Wednesday, July 31, 2013 from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM (CDT)
SHADOWBOSSES: Government Unions Exposed
Join us for a special event with author Mallory Factor as we recognize Milton Friedman's contributions to our country and the worldwide movement for freedom.
Milton Friedman was a leading advocate for school choice, an idea that has taken root and continues to grow in popularity. But while most Americans support school choice, efforts to expand it face organized and well funded opposition from unions determined to stifle competition in the realm of public education.
In Shadowbosses, Mallory Factor describes the agenda of government employee unions and explains how they achieve their aims. Learn how the biggest challenges of our time - our ballooning national debt, our failing K-12 education system, our states' ruinous finances, and health care reform - are tied up with the growth of government employee unions.
