Wisconsin teachers strike: Veteran of two huge strikes which, after all was said and done, resulted in the Union Board stepping down and a new contract which was the old one with a more expensive medical plan. But the spectacle of the teachers union displayed over millions of TV screens will only result in a lot of other states enacting laws which restrict strikes to work rules only. I think this will be the end of Government workers unions. From my experience these large scale strikes serve to isolate members from the actual news and force them to become stupidly focused on their demands. The Wisconsin Teachers are out on a limb with only other government unions backing them........
