Anyone who can read and has any knowledge of City State and Federal Government knows full well that Unions are the bane of balancing a budget.
The cost of Government employees is driving more than one State into the ditch.
Unions have long ago lost their usefulness. State and Federal wage and hour laws have along with minimum wage laws taken care of most issues that Unions were once good for helping workers with.
I agree that the Federal Minimum wage is too low but other than that, if you don't like your job quit and get a better one, or work harder and get promoted for a better wage.
The Senators in Wisconsin are unable to make a reasonable responsible argument in favor of their position so the cowards ran away like children and have abdicated their oath of office.
