Wisconsin state Assembly is set to vote on the anti-union “fiscal” bill. It’s set to eliminate collective bargaining, as well as authorize the state top fire any state employee who joins a strike, walk-out, sit-in, or coordinated effort to call in sick.
I didn’t expect the crazy maneuvering to ram the bill through without the Democrats. Expect legal challenges, more protests, and possibly a recall of some Republican senators…
Guess it will depend on who can mobilize the best. Unions or the Koch Brothers
What’s happening in Wisconsin, is happening in Ohio too. From Huff Post:
Ohio Gov. John Kasich (KAY’-sik) says he expects the state’s Republican-controlled House to pass a bill that would bar all public workers from striking and limit the bargaining rights of their unions.
The measure would limit the bargaining rights of roughly 350,000 teachers, firefighters, police officers and other public employees. They wouldn’t be able to negotiate health care benefits or certain working conditions.
It’s basically a concerted effort by Republicans to break apart the Dems support base.
