[Some guy covers USA Today's Front page. He has a mayor's badge. He's new at his job. He wants to throw the average worker of his State, under the bus, to balance the depleted books he inherited in budget short falls. He's caught in a cross-fire that's an economic fire. His name is Gov. Scott Walker. Is he doing the right thing, or, openly selling out his State's workers too cheaply - Associated Press]
The Associated Press report today, that a little judge, on tour, has put her foot down to temporarily halt of the bill that aims to dismantle unions negotiation power with average American workers. The bill (favored by Republicans and backed heavily by The Koch Brothers) openly aims to strip American workers of labor laws rights, lowering wages of average people in Wisconsin.
One judge says, hold that thought. For now. Her name is Maryann Sumi. Let’s see how she rolls. Read up.
MADISON, Wis. — A Wisconsin judge for the second time directed the state to put on hold an explosive law that strips most public workers of nearly all their union bargaining rights, ordering officials on Tuesday to follow her original instructions to stand down.
“Apparently that language was either misunderstood or ignored, but what I said was the further implementation of (the law) was enjoined,” said a visibly annoyed Dane County Circuit Judge Maryann Sumi. “That is what I now want to make crystal clear.”
Earlier this month, Sumi issued an emergency injunction prohibiting the Wisconsin secretary of state from formally publishing the law – the final step before it could take effect.”
I like Sumi’s stance on the issue. Communities are about people sharing resources to stay strong. When 10% of a nation keep pushing to erode more from the majority of Americans, this is unwise, it’s a recipe for civil war in the future and an uprising of injustice here in the USA, if the greedy, like The Koch’s don’t curb their greed.
Then on the other hand, China, who bypasses a Judge Sumi view, continue to underpay people thus holding (allegedly) a no.1 spot on a global stage of the world economy by doing exactly what the Koch brothers hope to achieve. Busting Wisconsins Unions. Where is the parity in the middle between China’s elite’s politics and American’s richest families – on this one issue of ‘scrapping over lowering labor’s worth’ in Wisconsin?
That’s what this news show is all about really. You can’t help but feel for all, in this raging debate in Wisconsin. I mean Wisconsin are good people. Wisconsin burgers are a hit in Auckland City. Wisconsin has a globally tested culture, people appreciate and support. Doesn’t Scott see this? Just recover the losses a bit slower over recouping strategies with a strategic interest, not a total stripping of man power. Woman power too.
Todd Richmond has the full story of how little Judge Mariann Sumi is putting the brakes on Scott’s strategy as Gov right now. Read it at Chron.Com.
I’m going to have a break for a bit. It’s time to get tacos for dinner in Hollywood. Love them. They remind me of the yummy food in Texas. A little spicy. And they’re affordable. Back in a bit. :)
