    Wis. gov. floats union compromise, but no deal yet

    Wis. gov. floats union compromise, but no deal yet - Yahoo! News

    According to e-mails released by Walker's office, he proposed a compromise Sunday night that would allow public workers to bargain over their salaries with no limit a change from his original plan that banned negotiated salary increases beyond inflation. He further softened his stance by agreeing to let collective bargaining to stay in place on mandatory overtime, performance bonuses, hazardous duty pay and classroom size for teachers.

    this is good news for both sides.

    It would be if the 14 in Chicago were in a mood to compromise. From your own article.

    MADISON, Wis. – Two of the 14 Senate Democrats who fled Wisconsin to block a vote on stripping most bargaining rights for public workers say Republican Gov. Scott Walker's proposed compromise isn't enough to bring them back to the Capitol, although they'll keep talking.
    they should all be fired.

    I am not sure the 14 democrats trust the Governor. He has tried any and everything to get them to come from calling them cowards,falsely accuse them of not doing their job(even though their job is to uphold the interests of their voters,which they have been doing), strip their pay, fine them and so on.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
