What would FDR think of Wisconsin?

"The process of collective bargaining, as usually understood, cannot be transplanted into the public service," Roosevelt wrote in 1937 to the National Federation of Federal Employees. Yes, public workers may demand fair treatment, wrote Roosevelt. But, he wrote, "I want to emphasize my conviction that militant tactics have no place" in the public sector. "A strike of public employees manifests nothing less than an intent on their part to prevent or obstruct the operations of Government."

  • "The process of collective bargaining, as usually understood, cannot be transplanted into the public service,"


    Then add to it those public service employees are TEACHERS who have shut down schools...... WWFDRD? I see it as yet another WTF moment (and I don't mean winning the future) that will bite Dems in the arse!


    Government workers~ DO NOT create profits.....  They demand MORE tax payer money... I read this and agree with it~ "Government collective bargaining means voters do not have the final say on public policy."

  • I moved out of that state and I am so glad I did. Let's face it, what happens in that state revolves around the Packers.
    on 9-11 the top news story was a story on the Packers, and 9-11 was a side note.

    I'm just happy I'm out of there.

  • He would be pissed that they gave them collective bargaining in the first place. He would be calling for an end to it.
