Those poor, dumb people in Wisconsin who voted for this joker:
Because caring about my interests is just another way to support "communism".
Why because now people can work overtime and make a little extra money if they want? Yeah those poor dumb people.
What? Like we couldn't do that before? Remove a guaranteed a day off, mix with at-will employment, and what you have are a bunch of people mandatory volunteering, because there are 10 people right behind you who'd kill for a job, you lazy bum!
The Left certainly perceives Walker as a threat judging by their hyperbolic, over-the-top reactions.
How many people are currently forced to work 6 day weeks against their will in Wisconsin?
Well, that one sociology professor certainly does.
Yet on that same ledger, you have Jeb Bush saying that we need to have longer work hours:
And who quickly rushes to defend his basically pro-business statement? Yep, you got it! Fox!
Yeah.. poor dumb people, indeed.
I'm glad Walker ended tenure. Higher education needs a huge overhaul from the guaranteed job nonsense of today. The changes need to go further. All public sector unions must be abolished. Even FDR was against them.
From the same article:
Just another "victory" for workers.
Get rid of the illegals (by fining their employers HEAVILY) and you'll have more jobs and hours to work.
Walker did not end tenure; he merely removed it from state law. Wisconsin now conforms with the other 49 states that do not address tenure in their state laws.
That won't fix nearly as much as you think. Most illegal workers are doing jobs most others don't want to do at wages well below the minimum standard. While this doesn't excuse the practice, it won't work as some panacea for the job market. If anything, it might make some goods skyrocket in price while not offering anything to your average working American.
A few key words highlighted for those with impaired reading comprehension (you know who you are!)
As a practical matter, I don't think employers will want to pay overtime on a routine basis. And many employees probably won't want to volunteer giving up their time off either. So I don't see much changing with the new rules. In practice, it seems like the worker and the employer have to both assent -- extra work provided voluntarily in exchange for agreed upon extra pay. Maybe for busy season or times when demands are high, like the holidays. What's wrong with that?
The article also mentions that waivers of the mandated one-day-off per week rule are routinely approved 100% of the time. So the rule is nothing but paperwork for government and union bureaucrats. Get rid of it.
There would be an adjustment period, sure, but that's why you would have to start restricting aid to able-bodied people. You have to give them a nudge to want to find work. When you remove 30 million illegals from the labor pool, there is going to be a demand for those labor services.
The prices would definitely go up since the cheap near-slave labor is now gone, but it would balance out because the work would have to get done by essentially minimum wage labor.
I do admire illegals for their strong work ethic, but that is still no excuse for breaking our laws and siphoning our generous assistance services.
My wife, who is in education said if he gets the Republican nomination she will be throwing away my ballot so I can't vote for him. You know he is an excellent choice if she and the left get that fired up about it.
I don't think Walker has the smarts to be President. Many Republicans refer to him as a doofus. Rubio, who wasn't the sharpest knife in the drawer, spent the past several months studying as he sounds intelligent on the issues now.
Cruz was a debate champion and would make minced meat out of any Dem in a debate, but he has a very unlikeable face. lol
Yeah, but the same was said about W too.
And what a sterling example of the presidency he turned out to be.
this one is not much better.
And everyone coming from the Reds is a step back from what we have now, if not steps back from GWB.
Since what we were talking about was smarts, what was your GPA at Yale?
YOU are voting based on "age", so please, let's not kid ourselves here.
