It’s heartening to see such a huge response to Scott Walker’s self-serving, corporate lunacy. Whether or not the media insists on ignoring the gigantic, numerous, peaceful crowds, whether or not they choose to ignore the real story about this being a hit on unions, Democratic voters, and democracy itself– not budget issues… on which Wisconsin union members have compromised– there is a lot of good coming out of this.
Voters are paying attention, and they’re becoming aware of what unions mean to Americans.
Wisconsin public employees who are members of AFSCME Council 24 have filed an unfair labor practice complaint against Gov. Scott Walker. [...]
In a press release, Council 24 Executive Director Marty Beil said:
This governor has never made any attempt to contact the unions he is attacking, much less negotiate in good faith as required by law.
Instead of trying to find real solutions to the challenges facing the state, the governor is attempting to dictate terms. This not only in ineffective, it’s against the law.
[...] If he continues to ignore the public, we have no choice but to turn to the courts,” Beil said.
