    Post the bill that strips the unions of collective bargaining on wages? As for contributing to the thread if you contribute anything to this one it will be the first time.

    LOL, from a minority position? Unions make up 11% of the work force so unless 11% is the majority, you are off base again as usual. take your argument to the taxpayers and see if they buy the collective bargaining agreement for public employees?

    Nothing takes away their right to negotiate wages, the issue is benefits. I suggest you read the bill.

    been there, done that...the bill strips them of the right to bargain benefits, it forces the unions to have a 'vote' every year to stay certified, it makes paying dues or joining the union an 'option' ...perhaps YOU SHOULD READ THE BILL.

    Right but not wages. Why should the unions be given the right to take taxpayer money for benefits? Maybe you should learn the difference between public and private sector unions. Doubt it will make a lot of difference though since you don't live in Wisconsin and don't have to pay for those benefits. Again you speak about something that doesn't concern you and you know so little about.

    Why doesn't the same standards apply to the polices, fire and prison unions??? Could it be possible because they supported Walker?

    Or it could have something to do with public safety. What is the difference between the union contracts? I don't like public unions at all as they are funded by the taxpayers not the private sector customers.

    I understand that many of the state unions you mentioned above did NOT support Walker. But why srart allowing the facts to get in the way of a good narrative/ talking point.
