Some local media have been applauding Gov. Scott Walker for his great progress on creating jobs in Wisconsin. What a joke. Nobody likes this recall, but Walker started this war. He’s made it so nobody can talk about politics without fighting and arguing. If Walker isn’t recalled, this state will become a “right to work” state, and people who don’t like unions will get their wish-no unions, private or public. The rich will get their wish-no middle class, just rich and poor.
Another joke is Scott Willman’s letter (Viewpoint, April 29) about the Earth Day photo op at the courthouse. He blames the public workers for wasting taxpayers’ money for being there. I’m sure they were ordered to be there; what choice did they have?
Just another example of Walker’s goal of turning people against public workers.
