    Wisconsin Supreme Court Upholds Anti-Union Bill

    BBC News - Wisconsin Supreme Court upholds anti-union bill


    The Wisconsin Supreme Court has upheld a law stripping most public employees' collective bargaining rights.

    In a 4-3 decision, the court ruled a lower court judge had improperly interfered in the legislative process when she overturned the law.

    In May, Judge Maryann Sumi ruled that Republicans violated open meetings laws in their haste to pass the bill.

    Republicans said the bill was needed to cut public spending. Democrats said it was an attack on pro-Democratic unions.

    Republicans said the bill was needed to cut public spending. Democrats said it was an attack on pro-Democratic unions.
    The Dems want to protect anti-free market closed-shop agreements while the GOP wants to spend taxpayer money on subsidies for its favorite businesses.

    There are no winners--just taking money from one institution and dumping it into another.

    What is clear is that the union leaders failed their members miserably. Politics is a game where the only meaningful goal is to WIN. If the union leaders had any muscle, they would've played dirty, i. e. starting a fund for women who had an affair w/Walker to come forward in exchange for a reward. It's well known that most all pols have extra-marital affairs yet the unions failed to exploit that to their advantage.
