Wis. Assembly passes bill taking away union rights

E-mail Print PDF

The Wisconsin Assembly early Friday passed a bill that would strip most public workers of their collective bargaining rights — the first significant action on the new Republican governor's plan.

The Assembly vote sends the bill on to the state Senate, where minority Democrats have been missing for a week. No one knows when — or if — they'll return from their hideout in Illinois. Republicans who control the Senate sent state troopers out looking for them at their homes on Thursday, but they turned up nothing.

TVNL Comment: Baseball players in Wisconsin now have more rights than civil servants. The Brewers can take part in collective bargaining but the public employees can not. How is that for freedom? How is that for democracy? Let's face it...Republicans are simply idiots. They are their own worst enemies and thy continue to support their worst enemies.
