Teachers should take cuts, pay more for health benefits and pensions while the rich should get tax breaks. Hmm. Governor Walker of Wisconsin has now donned the role of a bizarro Robin Hood!! Or is he using the deficit as an excuse to hurt public sector unions?
…even as he proclaims that Wisconsin faces a terrible fiscal crisis, he has been pushing through tax cuts that make the deficit worse. Mainly, however, he has made it clear that rather than bargaining with workers, he wants to end workers’ ability to bargain.
The Senate Democrats in the State of Wisconsin went into hiding because at least one Democrat needs to be present to vote on the bill to ban collective bargaining rights of public employees in the State.
It must be catching—the fleeing bit, I mean –because the Democrats in the State of Indiana are also AWOL, battling the same issue.
No pay for Governors and Senators and Wisconsin can still keep the unions. An answer to its prayers!
