I wanted to establish a thread somewhere other than on the “Contact BS” page to discuss what’s happening in Wisconsin. As a public school teacher, our very own Becky (long time BS BLOG contributor) is directly impacted by the union busting efforts of Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker.
I have an interest on a number of levels. I am the past President and Charter Member of an AFL-CIO affiliated Union Local. I’m married to a public school teacher, who is part of a collective bargaining unit. I was a public employee at the time of my union affiliation, as is my wife now. This topic does hit close to home for me.
Although Becky has been hesitant to really talk about it here thus far, maybe we can show her some support with our comments.
In the interim, check out this Fox News video. You’ll see PALM TREES in the backgound of a news clip used to show the protests taking place in Wisconsin. That’s right…palm trees. Nice job, Fox.
