Union Workers Replaced With Prison Labor Under Scott Walker’s Collective Bargaining Law | ThinkProgress
So here you go. We kill Unions so the jobs can't be negotiated. Then we give the jobs to prisoners to get FREE labor, (or at least cheaper, considering the cost and upkeep of prisoners.) The GOP is now free to pass draconian laws to up the prison populations to cheapen the supply of labor. Someone needs to do some research on the private prison industry in Wisconsin. Here's a perfect example of privatizing government services.
Disturbing trend indeed. Putting good union labor on the sideline will have consequences, both politically and economically. Gov. Walker is determined though. He's on a crusade. He just knows if if he can get everything turned around, all of us will see the benefits and everything will be fine. Fine that is if you enjoy autocracy, a lower class lifestyle, poor health, crappy infrastructure and watching rich people play with their toys. Disturbing trend indeed.
More work to do.
