Scott Walker: County jobs just a political “strategy”

Someone ought to tell Milwaukee County Executive Scott Walker that threatening to put county employees out of work is not a political “strategy:”

Milwaukee County Executive Scott Walker tells a Madison radio talk show host he pulled the trigger on county employee layoffs briefly last week as a strategy aimed at encouraging the County Board to come up with alternative savings.

While Scott Walker may think it’s good political strategy to threaten to lay off county employees – layoffs which would no doubt have a tremendous impact on those employees’ families – I think it’s absolutely despicable. Once again, Scott Walker has shown he lacks class or any regard for the employees he’s supposed to be “leading” as County Executive.
