The Progressive says “Collective Bargaining Lives Again in Wisconsin”
The Wisconsin State Journal’s headline for the same news is “State Workers Found In Contempt”.
A defeat of Walker’s cold war on workers is too much for this newspaper to broadcast in plain language in a headline.
Too much for even one day.
We all know that the
Koch Kourt Wisconsin Supreme Court will have its way with this issue on November 11th.
That’s TWENTY WHOLE DAYS (and a few hours) of guaranteed extra freedom for Wisconsin workers.
PUBLIC SECTOR WORKERS.
How will the editors of Wisconsin State Journal manage?
These shortening, dark days must be unbearable for the board members of Lee Enterprises.
I hope the doldrums don’t seep into the Associated Press. Mary Junck, the Director on Lee Enterprises’ Board also serves as Chair on the AP board.
The online version of this Wisconsin State Journal story is headlined “WERC staffers held in contempt for ignoring ruling in Act 10 challenge” – as of 6:43PM Central Time.
Interesting contrast between paper and online headlines.
Neither of them use the words “Wisconsin” “collective bargaining” “union” or “Walker”. At least the online story references “Act 10” which by now is quite familiar to politically-engaged Wisconsinites.
