Apparently they believe Scott Walker’s convoluted attack on unions, Act 10, wasn't intentional, ideological and removed so many services for members that what was the point of the union.
jsonline's Dan Bice: In 2010, the year that Walker was elected governor, AFSCME District Council 48 enrolled more than 9,000 workers and reporting income exceeding $7 million. By the end of 2012, District Council 48 was down to just under 3,500 … it is now more than $650,000 in the red.
Unions lost their value once they barred from providing services:
Walker said he was not surprised by the numbers. "We were trying to empower workers and give them a choice. If workers saw value out of their union, then they have every right to stay put. But if they didn't, they could make that choice." Walker rejected any suggestion that he had effectively handicapped the once-powerful labor groups with his legislation.
"Absolutely disingenuous," said Paul Secunda, an associate professor at Marquette University Law School … Act 10 was part of an orchestrated effort to undermine public employee unions … Walker's plan contains such punitive measures as requiring unions to recertify annually and barring employees from paying their union dues through payroll deductions … the governor reduced the importance of these unions by prohibiting collective bargaining on anything but wage increases — and then only up to the rate of inflation.
Pretty easy to figure out? Not for Walker or his loyal thugs who are just giving people "choice."
