    Ahhh, so your posts quoting Federal Law was off topic and had nothing to do with this thread.

    Re: Wisconsin governor gives Democrats ultimatum

    Just got back from Wisconsin on business. I don't know where these polls are coming from because Scott Walker is HUGELY popular up there right now.

    Only 12 percent of Americans belong to unions. And that number would be a lot smaller if many unions didn't REQUIRE union membership.

    Unions are about to crash and burn, and the media is freaking out about it.

    Expect more severely flawed "polls" showing how Americans support union bargaining. The truth is.....they don't.

    Well, we must work in different circles, because people I talked to are giddy as hell.

    Either way, they've got four years to go with him. Good luck, lol.

    He's so unpopular, that he got elected to office.

    Yes, as they should be. Their personal income tax rate is 4.5 to 7.75%. Walker has pledged not to raise them. His budget plan also limits how much schools and local governments can raise property taxes. This is great news for everyone in the state.

    Btw, I was in Chicago, too, and I can't say the same giddiness was apparent for Mayor Rahm.

    You missed the idea ..... what you claimed ... that was never the point in posting those links. It was to show you a basis in the USA for labor and the rights labor has.

    Of course, you ignored what you wanted to because it was unpleasant to face the reality of it and focused on the irrelevant instead.

    Here was the question asked by jamc back on page 2 #26

    Define "right" and tell me where it appears in either the state or nations constitutions.
    so to provide information from either the state or national level was appropriate.

    Perhaps it is the crowd you hang out with?
