Readers outside of the U.S. may not have heard of Governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin. A radical conservative, he led a battle to revoke the collective bargaining rights of almost all state workers (boo, hiss). The Democratic members of the state senate prevented a vote as long as they could by leaving en masse for neighboring Illinois, preventing a quorum. I share the reaction of this participant at the working families rally downtown a few weeks ago.
