    Well they had decades to step up to the plate..........and for decades they have stepped up and demanded more.


    benefits/pay are not the issue, this governor is hell bent on taking away collective bargaining rights of these unions, he wants to force them to 're-certify' every year, and wants to take away their ability to collect union dues...hence, he is trying to turn wisconsin into a 'right to work' state....he is trying to union bust.
    God Bless the Governor for it........I hope 49 other Governors follow his lead.

    The vast majority of Americans are tired of being raped via property taxes/states taxes/city taxes all in the name of providing Public Sector Union Slobs with their bloated salaries, gold plated health insurance, and diamond inlayed pensions.

    Its time to welcome the Public Sector Unions to REAL LIFE..........

    The governor is making hard choices. I am sure this is just one area. Unions have abused power and become a political machine that represents the Democrat party not the workers

    and business are in heavy with the republicans, so what is your point? shouldnt the worker have a voice? a hard choice? he is using the unions as a scapegoat, knowing full well that they are not the main cause of his budget shortfall, but sees it as a chance to stick it to the union....

    No he is trying to bring unions in line. In the last few years we have seen destruction of companies by unions abuse of powers. Steel industry and Auto workers, teachers this shows unions care about the money to support democrats.


    So democrats do not get money from large companies?

    not in the amounts that republicans do...and please explain to me, as i have never gotten a straight answer when i have asked this question before, why would i, as a union member, intentionally try to run the company i work for out of business, by making outrageous demands? seems to me, if i made them unprofitable, that i could quite possibly, more than likey, screw myself in the process....where is the logic in that?
