Wis. judge strikes down law curbing collective bargaining for public workers

Updated: September 14, 2012

A Wisconsin judge on Friday struck aside a law signed by Gov. Scott Walker (R) that curbed collective bargaining for most public employees, thrusting a contentious issue that spurred historic recall elections back into the spotlight less than two months before Election Day.

Dane County Judge Juan Colas ruled that the law violates both the state and U.S. Constitution and runs afoul of free speech and association, the Associated Press reported.

Why is it that when Scott Walker tussles with public sector unions, you wet yourself, but when BarryButtBuddy Rahm Emanuel does it, there is dead silence?

Right-wing Union-buster Rahm Emanuel Should Not Speak At the DNC

By Joe Macare (Contact)

To be delivered to: Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Chair of the Democratic National Committee
Rahm Emanuel should not be addressing the Democratic National Convention at a time when, as Mayor of Chicago, he is fighting against public school teachers who want a fair contract. Emanuel, who takes money from and regularly meets with big donors to other anti-union politicians like Scott Walker and Mitt Romney, has no place at the convention for a party that claims to stand with workers.

Mayor union-buster

Rahm Emanuel fights the Chicago Teachers Union over a longer school day–and it’s not about the kids

The showdown over the longer school day comes in the midst of an ongoing tussle between the mayor and the teachers union over money. Teachers want to hold on to what they've got and the mayor wants to give them less, probably so he has more left over to spend on other things, like deals for cronies and contributors.
But don't let anyone fool you—this fight over the school day is not about kids. Fundamentally, it's not even about money. It's a political power play by a crafty mayor who's looking to undercut the teachers union, one of the few sources of potential opposition left in this town.

You're still as clueless as ever,aren't you? Rahm Emanuel didn't pass any laws to end or restrict collective bargaining,nor has he engaged in any union busting.

Way to go Governor! Pay attention Hoosiers,you may be going down that road next...
Scott Walker’s right-wing austerity is destroying Wisconsin
Quote :
The Koch Brother’s favorite governor, GOP Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin, is struggling to show positive results on the local economy as neighboring states, and the rest of the country, pass Wisconsin by. Since implementing Walker’s right-wing austerity-embracing economic agenda, Wisconsin has dropped in the state rankings for jobs creation from an already-bad 42nd to now 44th place.

The bright side of Walker’s reign has been a forecasted budget surplus for the state economy, though this means little to the unemployed. In January of this year, unemployment spiked in Wisconsin, while nationwide it’s going down. The best that could be said about February was that things didn’t get any worse. A few more years of Scott Walker’s Paul-Ryan-style austerity and Wisconsin’s going to start looking like Spain and the UK and Portugal and every other country that mistakenly thought right-wing austerity would bring recovery.

Why do Republicans keep insisting on imposing failed European solutions on America? Sounds like socialism to me.

Wisc. GOP Gov. Scott Walker tells all in real phone call with blogger posing as billionaire David Koch

Curiously enough what is keeping Walker’s state unemployment numbers from looking much worse is the addition of government workers. Somehow Walker and his supporters are quiet about that point.

Like the rest of the country, Wisconsin doesn’t have a budget problem, it has a jobs problem. The US economy is rebounding (slowly, in part due to the stimulus that was too small), as are the neighboring Midwestern states but not Wisconsin.

A local Wisconsin newspaper editor weighs in:

Quote :
The most unsettling prospect with Gov. Scott Walker is the notion that he might actually believe what he is saying about the budget he is proposing for Wisconsin.

When Walker assumed the governorship two years ago, Wisconsin was holding its own economically. Job growth was competitive with neighboring states and the nation.

No more. Since Walker began implementing his austerity agenda, growth has stalled.
Just as president Obama is responsible for the national economy, Walker owns the state economy of Wisconsin. For all of his talk about creating private industry jobs, Walker and the state GOP have failed as miserably as the national GOP, and all of their far-right buddies in Europe. GOP austerity is a recipe for disaster – a fact that Wisconsin had to find out the hard way.

The inherent inaccuracy of the monthly data is an issue that's more than a year old in Wisconsin. Economists as well as the state agency freely admit that the data is prone to major revisions. That's because the government bases its monthly findings on sparse sample sizes, which create a wide margin of error when they are extrapolated. The government collects payroll tallies through a sampling of no more than 3.5% of the state's employers, which it extrapolates to create a statewide trend, while it bases the unemployment rate on a survey of 0.06% of the state's households.

To underline its point, the agency also released revised data for last year - and those revisions revealed how often the preliminary monthly numbers prove inaccurate and unreliable. Those revisions found that the preliminary estimates for total non-farm jobs last year undercounted non-farm job creation by 67,100, the agency said.

"As we pointed out many times when the monthly estimates were initially published, the estimations of thousands of job losses were based on unreliable methodology and did not track with all other economic indicators in the state showing job creation," department secretary Reggie Newson said in a statement.
