5. Go Wisconsin let's do it again!
Break Walker not the Unions!
Collective bargaining over other issues, such as workplace safety, hours and job security, is not allowed............. of course we would not want the workers to actually have a say over these issues!
I have to ask why Walker would exempt some and not those on the front line!
Sigh....so many fights to win.
