Dear All,

Please let me know if you would like to start a Milwaukee chapter of this organization.

Godsil

Barbara Ehrenreich and other people create a new organization, with $100,000 in seed money from the Service Employees International Union.

United Professionals

(www.unitedprofessionals.org)

One of the first UP chapters will be in Chicago.

If and when the group achieves critical mass, Ms. Ehrenreich sees it lobbying Congress just as AARP does, probably for universal health insurance and for requiring companies to provide severance when they lay off workers.

United Professionals plans to charge dues of 10 cents a day, $36.50 a year. Beyond mutual support and lobbying, the group hopes to find ways to provide members with legal and financial advice and affordable health insurance.

First national story on this important development at…
