I wish they would stop calling collective bargaining a right.

...(1) law stripping most public workers of nearly all of their collective bargaining rights in a decision hailed by Republicans (2) but not undoing a state court ruling keeping much of the law from being in effect.

So which is it?

I had to click through two links but it's no surprise that the AP wrote the story, especially given lines like this:

contentious law stripping most public workers of nearly all of their collective bargaining rights in a decision hailed by Republicans

The 'AP style book' used to be concerned with capitalization, acronyms and other rules of usage/presentation.

The REAL AP style is a poorly-disguised flood of bile whenever the writer disapproves of a person, group, policy or outcome.

'Historic' - anything the writer agrees with i.e. statism

'Controversial or contentious' - anything the writer disagrees with

The AP writer here is really laying it on thick.

'Stripping' - yes the writer wants an image of a poor teechur in the stocks being disrobed by a mob

Note that collective bargaining, a purely economic and legal exercise, has been elevated to the status of a 'right' along with real rights like free speech and the right to bear arms.

The law forced public union members to pay more for health insurance and pension benefits

No, it didn't force anything. It merely stated that if they wanted it they had to pay for it. Not 'pay more,' pay PERIOD. A revolutionary concept in Gimme Gimme Land.

Off to the Supreme Court, then. They’ll try, try, and try again, hoping that one of the conservative or swing votes will leave the Court and be replaced by a lefty. The thread of freedom is getting thin.
