More bad news for Wisconsin: Walker's anti-worker Act 10 upheld

Breaking news: Walker's anti-worker Act 10 upheld

Friends,

Today the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld Scott Walker's anti-worker Act 10 legislation.

While this ruling is a setback, we remain committed to fighting for the dignity and rights of workers across Wisconsin.

Below is the press statement from our Executive Director Lisa Subeck.

-Your Friends at United Wisconsin

Statement on Act 10 Decision

MADISON – United Wisconsin Executive Director Lisa Subeck released the following statement on the news that the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals has reversed the decision of a Federal District Judge and upheld Act 10 in its entirety.

“We are extremely disappointed by the decision of the 7th Court of Appeals which has upheld Scott Walker’s anti-worker Act 10 legislation. Act 10 was proposed and passed as a blatantly political maneuver to tip the scales in favor of Republican interests.

Today’s decision tarnishes Wisconsin’s proud history as a pioneer of workers’ rights. It is a slap in the face to our public servants and the workers who fought so hard for the right to collectively bargain. Today our state has taken a giant step backward.”

1. The 7th Circuit are full of baboons. It'll be overturned again.

 

Collective bargaining is what makes America tick.

Republicans want more money, and they show greed.

It's time to end greed, forever.

4. Interesting blog post:

"This was always the weakest of the lawsuits against Act 10 - so it's not a big surprise it didn't survive."
