On MSNBC this afternoon, Rev. Jesse Jackson called for workers across the nation to hold a major one day strike in protest of the new ‘right-to-work’ laws that passed in Michigan today.

“I never thought it would go this far north,” a disappointed Jackson said about the right-to-work movement. “And, yet, these workers in this state must fight back and draw a line in the sand.”

Jackson called for a “major strike,” and a “major march on Washington.”

“It’s time for a massive, dissident, direct action to bring about the ship in the flow of the wind,” he added.
