Scott Walker Dropped the Bomb Two Years Ago Today and Wisconsinís Economy is Still Shattered

Scott Walker Dropped the Bomb Two Years Ago Today and Wisconsinís Economy is Still Shattered
by Mary Bottari ó February 11, 2013 - 10:24am

After Wall Street collapsed the global economy in 2008, nationís around the world were thrown into political turmoil. In the United States, the 2010 election swept into office a group of radical governors and legislators who promised jobs on the campaign trail, but delivered political retribution instead.

In Wisconsin, Scott Walker was elected with a promise to create 250,000 jobs. Instead, one of his first acts was to crush Wisconsin unions. Unions not only stand up for working families in state legislative battles, but they most often support to Democrats in the election cycle with pooled resources and door-knocking power.

It is two years today since Walker ďdropped the bombĒ with a bill that eliminated collective bargaining for public workers in the state. He argued it was necessary to boost the economy, balance the budget and lure new businesses to the state.

Instead, Walker and his backers have created a long hard winter for Wisconsinís working families. Walker has 212,489 jobs left to deliver according to the ongoing count by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, but that has not stopped him from attempting to force low-income families reliant on Wisconsin's Foodshare program to look for work or starve.
