MADISON, Wis. — Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker took a hard line Monday against any compromise to break the stalemate over union bargaining rights here — a sign of just how dug in both sides are ahead of a lopsided legislative session Tuesday that will be marked by the continued absence of all Democratic lawmakers.
Protesters flooded the Capitol for the eighth day Monday to mark their opposition to Walker’s call to strip collective bargaining rights from public-sector unions to close the state’s budget gap, a fight that has drawn the attention of activists from the left and the right.

If a teacher doesn't want to be part of a union, he/she should be allowed to opt out.

Walker believes in freedom.

Collective bargaining is a government privilege, not an inalienable right.
And abusive collective bargaining should be ended, by government.

He is doing what the people of Wisconsin elected him to do. This should come as no surprise to anyone.

The union mobsters are too stupid to know they are being forced to do something they do not have to.

They are worried about losing the power to forcibly extract union dues from teachers.

So, out of curiosity, what happens if a teacher "crosses" the line? He/she get physically assaulted by the others like in the "good ol' days" of union coercion?
