    The claims against Walker are overstated, all collective bargaining rights aren't being eliminated. Right now Federal Workers don't have the rights they have in Wisconsin and that should tell you how out of kilter they are.

    That he has targeted health benefits, rather than salary, as the issue to be able to dictate unilaterally tells us something about the cost of health care. But, no, he doesn't want (or at least hasn't tried to) totally eliminate collective bargaining (yet) and simply dictate wages and working conditions.

    It does, and it sounds like the Federal Workers should be standing up for themselves more.

    If you want your.... what shall we call them ...."allegations" to be accepted as evidence here, yes indeed you have to prove them.

    What documented evidence are you referring to? I am happy to examine anything you would like to show us. I suspect you get your impressions of unions from fiction and bad movies... maybe even good movies - but fiction just the same.

    I wish you could see how stupid your comment sounds - but I know that it goes over your head just like every comment you make!

    Did you even read the articles I posted? Because if you had, you wouldn't make such ignorant statements. I'm taking a guess that you are still claiming that taxpayers are paying them! Bwahahaha! If that is true, then taxpayers pay for everyone's wages whether they are union or not - see how dumb that sounds?

    Wonder why conservatives like you don't research your arguments a little better so you don't sound so ignorant.
    i'm beggining to think that 'conservative' is nothing more than a computer program that has developed a glitch, he seems to be stuck in an endless loop, and keeps implying that these workers did not earn their money.

I suggest you read your own article and find out how pensions are really funded and by whom as well as who contributes?

    Love being called ignorant by you because you have such a screwed up definition of the word. Look in the mirror, pal.
    their money comes from the work they performed, it is wages earned...i can't believe that you can't figure this out.

    i'm from small town America, and i absolutely despise walmart....and this was even before i became union....i'd rather pay a little more for quality goods made in America, and keep jobs in America then send my money overseas...i'd rather support the local economy than the economy of china...the cheap stuff wally world sells comes with a hidden cost.
