Breaking the corrupt bargain between Democrats and unions in Wisconsin
Wisconsin proves that when given a choice people will reject the forced payment of union dues and the corrupt bargain between the unions and the Democrat party. The Democrats would grant salary and benefits to unions who would, in turn, get political donations from the union slush fund which grew from the increases. When it came time to bargain there was no one at the table representing the taxpayers who were getting stuck paying for this corrupt bargain. By breaking up the corrupt bargain, Wisconsin was able to get control of its budget. It is something that every state should do that still has forced union dues for public employees.
Wisconsin, once a labor stronghold, has lost tens of thousands of union members, and the shift has shaken the order of election-year politics.
