In the continued discussion around the Right to Freeload bill expected to come up for discussion in Madison this January, when the topic of worker freedom gets bandied about…no one from the right ever seems to suggest that an anti-union employee has the right to find a job in a non-union shop…and there are more […]
(Yes that Jessica McBride)…in a blog piece for OnMilwaukee.com, Jessica McBride opines on all of the things that Governor Scott Walker can’t seem to make up his mind about. You can read the whole article if you like…it does have a certain entertainment value…but here are her opinions on the misnamed mission of destiny for […]
An interesting little article popped up in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel this morning. Apparently a fair number of Wisconsin union firms including construction and highway builders aren’t that excited about the misnamed Right to Work bill being wined and dined by the GOP in Madison:
Some 300 construction and contracting businesses Wednesday joined their workers’ […]
As the Madison GOP fast tracks their right to freeload law…they are creating a new breed…someone who takes a good paying job with good benefits…but doesn’t want to pay the costs for the work that goes into earning that pay and those benefits…in other words…a TAKER!

Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald, R-Juneau, recently said he wants the Legislature to take up right-to-work quickly, which continues the Republican effort to destroy unions.

Anyone reading this blog won’t be surprised to hear that I am vehemently opposed to Right To Work legislation. Nor that I am not particularly happy about the events from the past week or so that have lead to this particular blog.

According to a report by Todd Richmond of Bloomberg Businessweek, Republican State Rep. Chris Kapenga is poised to submit “right to work” for less legislation here in Wisconsin during the next legislative session. A Republican lawmaker promised Tuesday to introduce a right-to-work bill, prompting warnings from a Democratic leader that the state could see a […]
This should surprise absolutely no one…. A longtime conservative activist with ties to national groups has started an organization to promote so-called “right to work” legislation.
Wisconsin Right to Work will seek changes in state law to prohibit businesses and unions from requiring workers to pay union dues as a condition of employment.
