Collective bargaining is not a right
By Scott Walker (Original source Washington Times)
“As a local official years ago, I saw the negative impact of collective bargaining on our taxpayers and on our excellent employees. So, during my first year in office as governor of Wisconsin, we took the power away from the big-government special interests and put it firmly into the hands of the hard-working taxpayers. Our Act 10 reforms were both pro-taxpayer and pro-worker.
The taxpayers of Wisconsin saved billions of dollars because of these reforms. And the people duly elected by the taxpayers now run our schools, state and local governments — instead of the big-government union bosses.
Public employees benefit from our reforms as well. Instead of being forced to pay dues to an organization that they may not support, our public servants now have the freedom to choose for themselves.”
