Wisconsin is not a 'right to work' state. Not yet, anyway. So, if the shop is unionized (and all of the public employees are), then the members have to join and the state was collecting the union dues through payroll withholding.
Now, each union member has to write that check themselves. Dues average $700-$1000 per year. There are 215,000 unionized public employees in Wisconsin. So, let's do the math:
215,000 x $700 is $150,500,000. 215,000 x $1,000 is $215,000,000.
$150-$215 million dollars, being paid by the taxpayers of Wisconsin, through their public employees, directly to the unions; who then spend that money to elect Democratic Party
Now you know why the Left is declaring war. Their gravy train just got derailed by a politician who actually did what he said he was going to do. Their lies have been exposed. They are not about the 'working man' and never have been. They are about money and power, and they use the 'working man' as both a stage prop and donor host to their parasitism. No longer. The mask has been pulled off, loudly and publicly for all to see. And, the Community Organizer-in-Chief has been exposed, encouraging them in their actions.
Top down, Bottom up...manufacturing a crisis so as not to let it go to waste.
