Unions are not the problem in Wisconsin, the right of a group of people to assemble and represent themselves didn't cause the budget deficits we have seen the past several years. It has been the politicians trying to secure their party's control or their political careers that have caused most of our problems. They throw money at everything, with virtually no controls or accountability and then lack the fortitude to change things when abuses and waste are pointed out. We seen the 2/3 school funding decimate our state budgets from it's inception. Where were all of you angry taxpayers, when you were getting brand new schools and school expansions in your neighborhoods? You weren't out there stopping these politicians and administrators!!

One can debate the " who says what he is going to do and then does it" piece. Considering a week prior to his election victory, he is on tape telling the Oshkosh Northwestern Newspaper that he would negotiate with unions to fix the wisconsin budget, or his fall back position would be furlough days for them. ...... He definitely didn't do what he said he would do there, but hey why hold that against him. We will just excuse it by saying " the ends justify the means"!! Just dont complain the next time a politician sells you a bill of goods to get your support, and then does the complete opposite to you. After all they will only be doing what Gov.Walker did to secure his election victory.

Well Unions have done allot of good things in Wisconsin over the past 50+ years. What would the landscape in blue collar Wisconsin look like without some of the things they secured in years past. Ultimately we saw the biggest assault on Wisconsin Government Employees, under Gov.Walker. Instead of looking at how much each employee got paid hourly seperate from their quote benefits, why dont we as taxpayers look at the "total" compensation they receive from hourly wages and benefits combined? What is the hourly cost of that teacher or correctional officer or highway worker etc.. What is the total hourly compensation cost, and then evaluate those figures.
