Are state workers really the 21st century coal miners?
Are state workers really in the position miners were in 1921? Let’s see. They have above average benefits. They have abover average wages. They definitely have above average working conditions. No, I would say that the mainstream media…tax payer funded in this case…is equivocating. Read the first paragraph and tell me if NPR isn’t being unfair to Scott Walker. He is not forbidding anyone the right to organize in private companies. Nor are the tax payers of Wisconsen the mine owners of 1921.
A new battle brews at the site where 15,000 coal miners once fought for the right to organize.
