    .........all in the name of providing Union slobs with their bloated salaries, gold plated health care, and diamond inlayed pensions.

    sure
    right
    you bet.

    reading the 'thoughts' of many here about unions is like listening to Stevie Wonder describe the color spectrum.

    You have no clue what you are taliking about here, Walker and the Republican majority were elected to clean up the mess the last administration caused

    I work in the private sector for a Wisconsin company & 2 years or so ago we took a 10% paycut along with suspension of 401k contributions. 40% of the work force was permanently laid off and had to find employment. Now even today with less wages my property taxes go up drastically every year mostly because of the schools. There are many people in the private sector in this state that can tell similar storys

    Tell me sir then why the hell these people should have to pay for State employees cadillac Health & pension plans? when many can hardly make the payment on my house and afford there own plan? These people need to quit there damn whining and take there cut just like most others had to.

    They'll get no sympathy from me and there continued childish antics trying to prevent what the majority wants and what a democratic election decided. They can keep it up if they want, There image is sinking by the day. To think they pulled the kids out of school to use as protesters for there own selfish reasons.

    And to think the'yd go this far over just a small percentage increase in what they'd pay for there pension & healthcare along with less of a role for the unions. Big deal... cry me a river.

    So evil! They must be destroyed!
    that is rather silly

    public workers are entitled to the full benefit of what ever laws are in place. why do we need public unions-all they do is drive up the costs on the taxpayers.

    Public laws? Wait, Turtle Dude, do we want public laws sticking their nose into business or do we want the private sector (unions) to handle it?

    Make up your mind, man! You're right, it is silly!

    Sounds like you are winning the race to the bottom. You should be a lot less angry than you are. You are angry because others do not want to fall as fast and as low as you? That is hardly a recipe for a successful nation built on accomplishment and progress.

    Jk. Sort of.

    I see nothing improper with the general mission of teachers' unions, or unions in general. The collective bargaining these organizations facilitate is important. But of course unions are more than capable of abusing bargaining power, just as big business can. I have no idea which party involved here has abused what, as I am unfamiliar with WI policy, so I'll refrain on making any judgment on this issue at this point in time.
    They get health insurance for half the cost of a private business employee

    I was a Union Steward at Regal Ware in in Kewaskum WI. A family owned business since before WW2. They are no longer in business
