Sanctioned Political Violence

Unable to legally ban union representation for Wisconsin's public employees, the GOP controlled state house illegally voted to terminate union representation for all public employees. These heavy-handed tactics are today's button-down corporate equivalent to the more bloody tactics used by Ford Motor and its enforcement goon squad supplied by the Pinkerton Detective Agency.

It should be clear to everyone that Gov. Walker's original claim that his assault on unions was driven by budget issues was a lie. The ugly truth behind what happened in Wisconsin, and what's happening in several other states, is that political conservatives and big money are colluding to destroy what remains of the union movement.
