From an Associated Press article on the subject:


A federal appeals court on Friday upheld Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker's contentious law stripping most public workers of nearly all of their collective bargaining rights, a victory for Republicans and a decision that runs contrary to one issued last year in state court.

The 7th Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago found the law is constitutional and its ban on the automatic deduction of union dues is acceptable. In September, a state circuit court judge said the law was unconstitutional as it applied to school and local government workers.

This reverses a lower court's ruling, which had found parts of the law unconstitutional.

"MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A federal appeals court on Friday upheld Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker's contentious law stripping most public workers of nearly all of their collective bargaining rights, a victory for Republicans and a decision that runs contrary to one issued last year in state court."

We've always know AP was totally biased but MPR, Minnesota Public Radio, taxpayer funded prints the biased article because, ta-da, it fits their bias, too.

A federal court held that the law saying unions couldn't force their victims to collect their dues for them was legal. Imagine that.

That's good news.

Many states are now modeling their own laws on the Wisconsin act.

Yes, I noticed that highly tendentious phraseology, too.

Still, I am very happy with the outcome--even if the AP is reporting it in a rather slanted manner...

Working in the underworld as I do, you also get to know politicians, perhaps the lowest of lowlifes who have entered my The Carousel Club. When they're not scoring some blow or renting out one of my girls, they sit around and brag about their deals. This topic is easy to comprehend in a "follow the money" way, as Deep Throat said. You cripple the unions, you cripple the Democratic Party's perhaps #1 donor. Then you thump your chest and say what a great advocate you are for the working people in this country while paying them less and working them harder.

Sorry, gotta go, Chicago is calling!

Someone saying they don't believe me? It's true because it's all politics, pure and simple. You don't get into the Dallas PD to get a clean shot at an assassin without knowing a thing or two.
