The Way I See It!

I am an Ultra-Conservative, Alpha-Male, True Authentic Leader, Type "C" Personality, who is very active in my community; whether it is donating time, clothes or money for Project Concern or going to Common Council meetings and voicing my opinions. As a blogger, I intend to provide a different viewpoint "The way I see it!" on various world, national and local issues with a few helpful tips & tidbits sprinkled in.

Are You One?

Wisconsin, Scott Walker, school, Public Sector Unions

From the Wisconsin State Journal

 

Some union members pleased with Walker's changes

 

 

Susan Flood says she will gladly subtract $4,000 in pension and health premiums from her take-home pay next year in exchange for not having to pay roughly $800 in union dues.

 

Few of her fellow teachers at Brookwood Elementary School in the Genoa City District share her view of Wisconsin's new public sector labor law, which soon will affect the paychecks of thousands of public employees, Flood said.

 

But she is a Republican who has been required for 19 years to pay dues to a union she views as promoting mediocrity and high taxes.  So when the law stripped public employees of most union rights this year, she celebrated.

 

"They say the union is there to stand up for you," Flood said.  "Well, no one has ever had to stand up for me.  I think I stand up for myself by doing my job."
