• Scott Walker Delivers ANOTHER Blow To Wisconsin Liberals

    As the Wisconsin governor’s presidential star power rises, it’s easy to forget that he’s still tasked with making sure the Badger State is run well.

    And in that effort Scott Walker has taken on the powerful union brass in Wisconsin, and has come out on top every single time.

    Today, Gov. Scott Walker gets to poke his finger in the eyes of Wisconsin liberals one more time. Just hours ago, Walker signed into law Right to Work legislation, which will protect private sectors employees who don’t want to be forced to join a union.

    After today, Wisconsin will become America’s 25th Right to Work state.

    People being able to choose whether or not they want to do something, like join a union, should be celebrated by liberals who say they are all about the right to choose.

    But the opposite is true.

    “The passage of this bill is another step in the conspiracy of multinational corporations and right wing billionaires to rig the economy against average working people,” said Robert Kraig, executive director of Citizen Action of Wisconsin according to the Daily Caller.

    “When added to the other elements of the conspiracy, encouraging the outsourcing of jobs, driving down the value of the minimum wage, devastating public employee unions, and gutting our generational investments in our schools and colleges, it will accelerate a race to the bottom by shrinking the middle class,” Kraig also wrote. “It will make it harder and harder for millions of working families shutout [sic] of opportunity to work their way up the economic ladder and claim their piece of the American dream.”

    Again. The liberal spin on Right to Work (RTW) just doesn’t ring true.

    A study by the Bureau of Economic Analysis found that between 2003 and 2013, manufacturing GDP grew 26.1 percent in RTW states vs. a measly 13.8 percent in forced-union states. Private sector pay also increased by 9.2 percent in RTW states vs. 4.0 percent in non-RTW sates. Population of people between the ages 35 and 54 grew 5.4 percent in RTW states, and decreased 4.1 percent in other states according to the Commerce Department.


    “You know how it is: It threatens the power the Big Government Labor Bosses crave and they are going to come after him with everything they’ve got.” Walker said today at an event celebrating the new RTW law’s singing. “This freedom-to-work legislation will give workers the freedom to choose whether or not they want to join a union, and employers another compelling reason to consider expanding or moving their business to Wisconsin.”
