Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker said Thursday that he will issue layoff notices to 1,500 state workers on Friday if his proposal forcing them to pay more for benefits and taking away nearly all their collective bargaining rights isn't passed by then.Additionally, the leader of the state Senate has issued contempt warrants for the 14 missing Democratic Senators.
The Republican leader of the Wisconsin Senate has signed orders finding 14 AWOL Democrats in contempt. The orders signed Thursday allow the sergeant at arms to detain the missing senators and use police force if necessary.With the passage of so much time...in my opinion those missing Senators have hurt their cause far more than helping, especially if the governor goes through with the proposed layoffs. Personally, I'd far rather, in the current economy, take a cut in benefits...than lose my job. I spent the most of 2 years out of work and pretty much lost everything. Those selfish state workers have no idea what they're facing...but they'll soon find out. In the near future they'll have to try and find jobs and actually work for a living.
If you can possibly afford it please hit the tip jar to the right.
