    I'd like an answer to as well.  The private sector unions are under the National Labor Relations Act.  I question how a state legislature can enact legislation that would seemingly be prohibited under the NLRA. Hopefully, more information about how this attempt by WI Republicans to neuter the law governing private sector unions can be defeated.

      tonight on the drive home. Not one of my favorite local shows but I was interested to hear the Right leaning Dominic (?) saying he was opposed to Walker messing around with private unions. His reason? Big Government. Government should not be involved in dictating the contracts between individuals and parties in the private sector. Where would it end? was his rationale. Interesting - wonder if more right leaners feel that way?

        sense in terms of the conservatives' ideology.  I think the next few weeks and even months are going to be interesting (and hopefully not painful).  Labor is going to have to take action about this move by Walker . . . . . and I read today on the Cognitive Dissonance blog (check it out if you're not familiar with it) that that blog owner expects Labor will shut this state down.  Here's the link to that blog.
