Three employees of a Wisconsin police department are retiring early because of Scott Walker’s power grabby, union-hating, democracy-threatening “budget” cuts, which of course had nothing to do with the budget, and everything to do with abolishing workers’ rights.
The state will lose three experienced workers because of Walker’s overreach.
[T]hree women walked away from jobs at the Green Bay Police Department, taking with them a combined 90 years of on-the-job experience.
None had planned to call it quits at this time. But each felt threatened by Gov. Scott Walker’s sweeping move to curtail benefits and collective bargaining rights for 175,000 public employees throughout the state.
If the new governor could make such major changes so easily, the city workers thought, what would prevent him from going after their pension funds and robbing them of their retirement security?
Is this what Wisconsin voters wanted or expected from their new governor? The recalls cannot come quickly enough.
