WI’s problem is the mess in their state senate, the infamous fleebaggers scenario.
They simply don’t have the numbers unlike Michigan’s overwhelming, veto-proof GOP senate 26-12.
Besides, Walker already ripped apart collective bargaining which is a whole lot more damaging to the union’s power than a simple RTW.
Yes. Ending the state witholding for union dues was the precedent, let the unions fight in other states now for their un-lives.
What Governor Walker did to public sector unions is much more damaging than RTW. Private sector unions are dying on there own no reason to fight that battle now.
I have to say though I grew up in Michigan and always dreamed of a day Michigan would be RTW never thinking it would happen, but Snyder proved himself a hero.
He has seriously wounded the beast, but it still has some strength left. Public sector union membership is in drastic decline, as are the dues going to union coffers. Better to let it bleed out a bit, and finish it off when it's weaker.
Plus, since the recall elections, the Dems have a 1-vote majority in the state senate. This will change in January, when the winners of the November elections take their seats and the Repubs resume having a majority (18-15).
After the 2014 elections, we might see something happen.
