Wisconsin’s Walker Calls for End of Collective Bargaining, Alerts National Guard

First Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) announced a state budget plan that  strips state workers of nearly all
their collective bargaining rights, cuts pay and benefits and says there will be no negotiations.

Rest of story….

Phi Beta Iota:  Ronald Reagan broke the back of modern labor with his use of the military to break the air traffic controller’s strike.  It appears that Governor Walker is demonstrating a similar disregard for the sanctity of labor rights, and that the National Guard–as with the Pentagon in Reagan’s time–will be a willful collaborator this time around.
