    Wisconsin Democrats don't have a prayer of Walker getting recalled.

    Is this just for state workers or all workers?

    Last place I worked, before retiring, they hired a "hit man".....this guy did not want anyone knowing where he lived....after he eliminated a substantial percentage of our older work force, he was "fired". Many of us think that was just a cover. Apparently he goes from place to place doing the dirty deeds upper mgrs want done, then goes on to the next place. I found out where he went next, and knew someone there, and warned him....

    Lawsuits should be capped period. You should able to collect the collect the cost of the average attorney, and back wages should you win an employee discrimination lawsuit, but you shouldn't be allowed to collect hundreds or thousands of dollars of additional money.
    If you wasn't closed shops banned them you dont support freedom. There is a argument to be made about preventing public unions from being chooses shouted though, but walker went to far by targeting all unions.

    I'm wating for Walker's "Haley Barbour" impersonation - when he sends his wife out to buy cars for the trustees he's released after working at the governor's mansion?

    Take a hypothetical husband and wife who are both lawyers. But the husband is working 50 or 60 hours a week, going all out, making 200 grand a year. The woman takes time off, raises kids, is not go go go. Now they’re 50 years old. The husband is making 200 grand a year, the woman is making 40 grand a year. It wasn’t discrimination. There was a different sense of urgency in each person.

    You could argue that money is more important for men. I think a guy in their first job, maybe because they expect to be a breadwinner someday, may be a little more money-conscious. To attribute everything to a so-called bias in the workplace is just not true.

    (Wisconsin State Senator Sen. Glenn Grothman (R), who led the effort to repeal Wisconsin’s Equal Pay Enforcement Act because of his belief that pay discrimination is a myth driven by liberal women’s groups.)

    Wisconsin State Senator Says Money Is Less Important To Women
    - in two-thirds of American families, women are either primary or co-breadwinners,

    - women still earn less than their male counterparts in all 50 states

    - in 2009, Wisconsin ranked 36th in the nation with respect to workplace gender parity

    In their repeal of Wisconsin’s Equal Pay Enforcement Act, only Governor Walker and the Republican's could make such a strategic blunder during a presidential election year that would only further alienate women voters.

    Mitt Romney may have gotten rid of Rick Santorum, but Scott Walker has just placed a huge political "albatross" around his neck!
