What People Are Saying...

I have received a number of emails over the past few weeks asking me to weigh in on the issues in Wisconsin because I "seem to be level-headed when it comes to politics..." Thank you for the compliment, and I certainly try to be open to all viewpoints (something I wish more people would be). The current issue is tough, but I do see the arguments from both sides.

Honestly, I am pro-worker but not always pro-union. This does not mean I am against the benefits that unions have fought for (quite the contrary), but when the union takes on a life of its own and vows simply to just protect itself and not the workers it is supposed to advocate for... I think that is a big problem. I am trying to skip the politics of unions altogether.

To let you see what others have said, I have gathered articles and editorials from various newspapers, and the first one is written by Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker.
