"There is an excellent correlation between giving society what it wants and making money, and almost no correlation between the desire to make money and how much money one makes." ~Dalio
That's why its called a State Certification.
And how is this bar higher than elected politicians themselves? Because it must be done every year?
God that would be awesome if we actually had 100% vote participation.
But more to the point, for a union to certify, prior to this year, they needed 51% of eligible union members. So the rule hasn't changed, except that instead of certification being infinite, it now has a 365 day limit.

The linked website is indirectly linked to Gov. Walker in that it asks the same question I've been asking since the 2010 mid-term elections: "Who's Really Behind all the Recent Republican legislation efforts?"
The details outlined make for a very fascinating read. Personally, I find it more than mere coincidence that so many Republican-held state legislators are pushing forward with similar legislation on everything from public employee unions, pay and benefits, removing collective bargaining rights, right-to-work legislation, immigration reform to seeking to repeal health care reform. There has to be a consorted effort by a leading organization pushing these such agendas. The question is who?
Mind you, I'm no conspiracy theorist, but it is interesting how so much is happening from the various states along similar policial lines. There has to be a clear explanation for it. I'd say Prof. Cronon stumbled upon some very dire truths.
