Las Vegas Sun ^ | September 11, 2015

The Wisconsin governor who's known for taking on unions in his home state is holding the event Monday afternoon at XTreme Manufacturing.

He said he'll discuss his plan to transfer power from union bosses to taxpayers. He said the strategy includes preventing the government from deducting union dues from federal employees' paychecks.

Las Vegas is home to powerful labor groups, including the Culinary Union that represents some 55,000 casino workers.

I hope Scott is careful here in Vegas. The unions here are ruthless.

In the agency I worked for, union dues were only deducted from employees who Elected to belong to a union. There were four different craft unions. Walker is saying he would prevent those dues from being deducted even if the employee voluntarily joined a union?

I should have said the many of the union people here are violent thugs.

He will make an excellent Secretary of Labor.

He has my full support for that appointment when the time comes.

ISIS. Iran. Half trillion dollar deficits. Dis-functional Congress. Schools in shambles. Millions of people unemployed or underemployed. And Walker decides that Unions should be his prime target now? Really?

No wonder he's rapidly descending into irrelevance as a candidate.

Of all the challenges we face, I don’t think most Americans are prioritizing the take down of unions. I’ve never belonged to a union, but I supervised employees who belonged to them and believe that they should have the right to choose membership in a union if they wish.

Walker has been addressing those issues too.

Much of the money and muscle behind the Democrat machine is union money.

Which is a shame of ignorance, because behind EVERY BROKE GOVERNMENT (city, county, state) are POWERFUL UNION CONTRACTS. It's a ticking time bomb 100 fold illegal immigration.

Barack and Hillary don’t think it’s a waste of time, they went on the offensive this week against Walker.

Yes too bad Scotty didn’t think of kicking out all the illegals in 18-24 mos and then building a wall. Now that’s a plan. :-)

And yet in many many locations, union membership is not chosen, it is forced on everybody in a given profession. How do you justify that?
