    Another Big Foundation win in Wisconsin

    Two years ago the eyes of the nation were on Wisconsin for the intense battle to protect the Right to Work for teachers and civil servants.

    While others thought the battle was over when the state employee Right to Work bill passed, I knew better.

    You see, in September 2011, teacher union bosses told Amy Anaya that she “had to” join — and pay dues to — the Greenwood Education Association (GEA) union.

    But that wasn’t true.

    Wisconsin’s Act 10 (the state employee Right to Work law), enacted earlier that year, protects the right of teachers and other government workers in the state to refrain from paying union dues or fees as a condition of employment.

    In all, they illegally seized approximately $750 from Amy Anaya.

    And if they had gotten away with it, union bosses across the state would simply have followed this model to make the state employee Right to Work law all-but-meaningless.

    But using the free legal aid your contributions make possible, Amy filed a complaint with the Wisconsin Employment Relations Commission last September.

    Last week, she won a settlement under which she will receive a refund of most of illegally-seized dues.

    This just in: 92% of American people and 88% of NRA members support Obama’s gun control background checks.

Canany of you right wingers explain why? DB. DD. Ibsles???

    You must have typed a word that tripped the censors. I know whenever I type the word ab0rtion in proper form my post doesn’t appear. Another problem I have is using certain websites(legit ones like ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC, etc)
