Gov. Walker Under Fire For Equal Pay Repeal [Video]
Wisconsin may be the at the helm in the fight against corporate influence in state government, but it is also offering up a preview for just how hard Democrats plan to hit back against the Republican war on women.
Then there is this video of University of Wisconsin Madison Junior student and Kathleen Falk supporter Fiona Cahill speaking out against Walker’s policies at the Falk Equal Pay Day event on the Wisconsin State Capitol steps yesterday.
The attacks must be making Walker nervous. He defended the repeal of the state’s equal pay law by blaming trial attorneys for “clogging up the legal system” with equal pay claims, trotting out standard Republican talking points for opposing pay equity in general.
With the recall election a few short months away and Republicans in the state and nationwide intent of doubling down on their opposition to workplace equity for women, we can expect to see the attacks to get more direct and more pointed. For Democrats that could be good news indeed.
