    First, everybody gets a lunch hour and occassional breaks.
    Second, this job is bursts of frentic activity coupled with lots of waiting in committee rooms, legislative breaks and waiting for lobbyists to show up for meetings. You do know what an ipad is right? But your concern for my employer and the taxpayers is touching. Thank you.

    If you really care, the State Rep I work for has got a real laugh out of some of the posts here. You provide us a smile now and then.

    corporate=private sector
    public=taxpayer

    You don't seem to understand the difference.

    Glad to help, maybe you should ask him/her for a coherent response that offers facts. It might create credibility if he/she is interested in credibility. Apparently many Democrats aren't.

    This has nothing to do with corporate control of America. It has to do with whether or not taxpayers are going to continue to be controlled by public-sector unions.

    Then obviously your employer isn't that smart if he/she believes your posts are coherent and full of facts. You don't seem to even know what the dispute is all about in Wisconsin. Hint: wages aren't an issue

    What corporate control? What percentage of the work force is corporations? We know that unions make up 11.9% so check the numbers on corporations. You are going to be shocked.

    Corporations=job creation, both corporate and personal income taxes, charitable giving, corporate citizenship, individual development and marketability, not funded by taxpayers. Want me to go on?

    Compare that to the pubic employees and unions.
