The Republican Governor of Wisconsin, Scott Walker, has proposed legislation that would eliminate most of public employees' collective bargaining rights. This has led to nearly a week of massive protests by both supporters and opponents of the governor's plan.

How long will it take till we see similar attempts in other states, including here?  Frankly I think the more stories we see like this, about Massport chief Tom Kinton retiring with a sick leave payout of $459,616 and a pension around $200,000 a year, the more Massachusetts voters are going to applaud what Governor Walker is trying to do.

Friends in Wisconsin have nothing good to say about this governor. He's being too draconian and completely unwilling to compromise. It's very telling that such huge numbers of citizens have been coming out to demonstrate against the proposed measures.
