Why Wis. Gov. Walker is working to break the unions
Ok, so I usually hate long videos on the internet, but this is actually very straight forward and explains things in a very easy to understand way.
Rachel Maddow takes facts and shows why the governor of Wisconsin, who got all the financial concessions he wanted, still wants to strip Wisconsin union workers of their rights of collective bargaining.
Basically it goes like this: get rid of unions, fewer Democrats, fewer Democrats to win elections.
By the way, he apparently tried a similar tactic earlier in his career firing union security guards and then hired a private security company. A company with a history of partying on the job in Iraq. The security "chief" hired in that instance in Wisconsin had a police record including jail time. And in the end, the move didn't save nearly as much money as promised by Walker.
It's a very interesting explanation. Watch.
