We warned you at the beginning. Act 10 has been devastating to WI.
First a look at ACT10 from Scott Walker's far right extreme point of view.
Scott Walker is delusional enough to actually think that if everyone had used his ALEC written agenda, that everyone would be thriving.
The Journal Sentinel says Walker likened his public union philosophy to that of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, saying the former president felt "that there wasn't a need for collective bargaining in the public sector "because the government is the people."
Walker says if Detroit were in Wisconsin, Detroit wouldn't be declaring bankruptcy. And if Chicago were in Wisconsin, Mayor Rahm Emmanuel would be successful with his school reforms.
Contentious legislation passed in Wisconsin in 2011 repealed collective bargaining for most public employees
Apparently in Walker's fantasy land, public workers making a living wage was more costly to Detroit than the outsourcing of millions of jobs.
Say it with me, but wait - there is more!
As if Scott Walker has not done enough damage with ACT10 he is ready to expand it!
Two-and-a-half years after mostly sparing police officers and firefighters, Gov. Scott Walker said this week he is open to the idea of limiting their ability to collectively bargain.
Such a move would undercut the few unions where he has found support. The unions for Milwaukee officers and firefighters, for example, were among those that endorsed Walker in 2010 and in the 2012 attempt to recall him from office.
The problem with ACT10 is while it worked well for its intended purpose(which was to punish his enemy and cut funding to the Democratic Party), it has not worked out well for the people in Wisconsin who actually work for a living!
John "Sly" Sylvester actually gave a forum recently to the voiceless in this fight. The people who paid dearly for ACT10, the people who you see everyday who are struggling mightily while you sing the praises of your $20 tax cut. The people who do not ever get a private audience or even within site of Scott Walker.
These are the stories you need to hear!
