Walker To Propose War On American Workers

Scott Walker, in an act of desperation in trying to keep himself in the presidential bid, is taking things to an unprecedented extreme by declaring war on the American worker.

Per Scott Bauer of the AP:
Republican presidential candidate Scott Walker on Monday will call for sweeping restrictions on organized labor in the U.S., seeking to replicate nationwide his successful effort as Wisconsin's governor to curb the power of unions.

At a town hall meeting in Las Vegas, Walker will propose eliminating unions for employees of the federal government, making all workplaces right-to-work unless individual states vote otherwise, scrapping the federal agency that oversees unfair labor practices and making it more difficult for unions to organize.

Many of Walker's proposals are focused on unions for workers at all levels of government, while others would also affect private-sector unions. Labor law experts said such an effort, if successful, would substantially reduce the power of organized labor in America.

While Walker could enact some of the proposals via presidential executive order, others would require an act of Congress or changes in federal regulations. The goal, Walker said, is "to achieve fairness and opportunity for American workers."

"This will not be easy," Walker said in a statement to The Associated Press. "Many — including the union bosses and the politicians they puppet — have long benefited from Washington rules that put the needs of special interests before needs of middle-class families."
It's ironic that Walker would say that he is worried about the middle class since his plantation economic agenda has led Wisconsin to see the biggest drop in middle class families in the nation.

Experts in labor laws are aghast by Walker's agenda:
Experts were taken aback by the scope of Walker's proposals, which seek to undo decades of law and would gut the landmark National Relations Labor Act — adopted in 1935 and signed into law by President Franklin D. Roosevelt at the height of the Great Depression.

"I've never seen anything like this," said Ann Hodges, a professor at the University of Richmond who has studied labor law for more than 40 years. "This will take the breath away from anyone who's worked in labor relations for any length of time. ... It's pretty draconian."

Walker's plan also calls for prohibiting automatic withdrawal of union dues to be used for political purposes and forbidding union organizers to access employees' personal information, such as their phone numbers.

Lee Adler, a labor law expert at Cornell University, said Walker's proposals would eliminate workers' rights and make it more difficult for people to join the middle class.

"Mr. Walker could only be making these type of proposals to satisfy his most backward-looking, wealthy contributors, just as he pursued, as governor, policies advanced by these people that sought to destroy school teachers and other public employees' rights in Wisconsin," he said.
To be perfectly clear, Walker's proposal is to bring full-fledged fascism to the United States.

His agenda, given straight to him from the dark money special interests via ALEC, is not to help workers or give them freedom.His agenda is all about usurping control of the country for his corporate masters and to silence the voice of the people, especially those who would oppose them.


  1. Hail Mary pass to try to get attention. And to try to rule up protests against him. Don't take the bait, and laugh at the doofus

  3. This man simply makes a fool of himself every time he opens his mouth. Within 24 hours a Walker spokesperson will come out with an explanation that will state that Walker really didn't mean all of what he said and after the shock value has drawn headlines they'll walk back most of what he said. He really wants people across the country to look at Wisconsin's economy, dwindling middle class, education demise K-16 and our polluted environment and people out- migrating because of our downward spiral? The man knows not of what he speaks. If Wisconsin was a roaring economic, educational and environmental utopia he could stand behind his record but we have become a disaster in all these areas thanks to his leadership!
