Public Workers Face More Upside Down Politics | Labor Notes

“We can no longer live in a society where the public employees are the haves and taxpayers who foot the bills are the have-nots,” crowed Scott Walker, Wisconsin’s newly elected governor, in a recent speech.
Forget about the fact that it was out-of-control bankers and greedy CEOs—the real haves in this country—who derailed the economy three years ago.
Walker and his ilk are treating public sector workers like America’s Most Wanted, letting the corporate class slide out of the limelight and get back to fattening their bank accounts.
