No one has ever forced you to join a union. You ALWAYS have th option to work somewhere else / Joining a union shop IS a choice. Why would you even want to work in a union shop if you hate them so much? Possible because the pay is better???? the benefits are better?? You dont think the companies provided those to of the goodness of their heart do you.

All you have steve r is rhetoric. Empty words.

Walker would have easily been recalled if more progressives had voted.

I hear the economy is doing much better since he has been in office, so why fix something that isn't broke? Stupid people of Wisconsin if you don't keep him in.

Steve R says "increasing the more than $46,000 DEBT that each and every American man, woman and child currently owes thanks to the Democrats reckless and irresponsible spending." CORRECTION: that would be George W Bush and his 2 unpaid by the GOP wars. Oh and his tax breaks for the rich have made us go back into debt. Remember when Pres.Clinton was in office we had a surplus?. lets put the blame where it really belongs and it really belongs to the GOP. I think the GOP should pay for it with higher taxes as a punishment.

If you think unions have not done anything from you, you are unaware of everything we take for granted today that came from unions. If you have taken a single paid sick day or paid vacation day - no need to thank a union member. Paid maternity leave, employer provided health care, child labor laws, and soooooooo many more. here is video to watch about it http://youtu.be/iObqguaNDdA

This is a very sad result. The people have lost and big money and deception have won. I wonder how long it will take Wisconsinites to wake up to what they have done. Wake up they will, as soon as they start hurting enough.
This has serious repercussions for the whole of America and the world.
