Wisconsin Our Egypt?

Republicans can rejoice, their cost cutting measures have at least in the short term succeeded.

Apparently it's a good idea to remove rights of workers to bargain for their wages.

Although not all rights were stripped in the ram a jamma bill passage, unions were tossed out with fewer powers.

But heres' teh thing, it get the unions battle for wages, and that the wages they are currently represent in the Madison crisis pertain to the public sector, which means tax payers.....and budgets. Yet when do we balance the '400 people earn more than half of America' vs. giving people the right negotiate better wages.

To obad we couldn't have had a better dialogue about it.....

How do you hide 75K people?



Funny how little attention this has received from the media. Sure, just a bunch of jobs on the line, and heck, Americans protest/picket all the time.

But when you get 20-70K (I don't know what the real numbers are, but it's huge), you'd think someone would take notice?

Thank goodnesses for social media or millions of people wouldn't be interested in some exceptionally ludicrous actions by money hungry Republicans.
