As a result, taxes were raised, benefits cut, and more draconian measures are planned, affecting pay, healthcare, pensions and other ways to make state and private workers bear the burden of years of mismanagement, fraud, and corporate favoritism under Democrat and Republican-led governments.

A Final Comment

Strong unions in America face an existential struggle for survival, pitting worker rights against big money allied with all levels of government and union bosses, harming rank and file interests for their own privilege and self-enrichment.

As a result, workers are largely dependent on their own tenacity, resourcefulness, and courage to struggle for rights too precious to lose. It's not solely a Wisconsin issue. All public and private workers across America are affected, their futures on the line against destructive dark forces essential to recognize, confront and defeat. The moment of truth is now.
