More Than They Bargained for
Scott Walker, Unions, and the Fight for WisconsinBook - 2013
"When Wisconsin became the first state in the nation in 1959 to let public employees bargain with their employers, the legislation catalyzed changes to labor laws across the country. In March 2011, when newly elected governor Scott Walker repealed most of that labor law and subsequent ones and then became the first governor in the nation to survive a recall election fifteen months later it sent a different message. Both times, Wisconsin took the lead, first empowering public unions and then weakening them. This book recounts the battle between the Republican governor and the unions."--
