As a blogger, I intend to provide a different viewpoint "The way I see it!" on various world, national and local issues with a few helpful tips & tidbits sprinkled in.

Barrett Can't Name Any Schools Hurt by Walker's Collective Bargaining Reforms

2012 Election, Act 10, Collective Bargaining, Democrats, Liberals, PUP, Public Sector Unions, Recall, Scott Walker, tom Barrett, Wisconsin, Debunked

"Walker's Democratic challenger, Milwaukee mayor Tom Barrett, acknowledged this morning that the collective bargaining issue was the "flame that started this" recall election, but Barrett couldn't point to a single public school that has been harmed by Walker's reforms."


TWS: On collective bargaining, mayor, the governor and his campaign have pointed to a number of... schools across the state that heave benefited from the reforms in Act 10.  Which school districts have been hurt in particular, in your view, by Walker's policies and his reforms?  Are there any that stand out in your mind?


BARRETT: Well, I support the restoration of collective bargaining rights. And that's what this is all about--whether you support workers' rights.  And I support workers' rights.


TWS: But are there any school districts in particular, though, that have been hurt by Act 10?


BARRETT: I have talked to prison guards, I can tell you that, who are concerned about their own public safety because of the changes in the law, and I'm very concerned about that as well


TWS: But no school districts—


BARRETT: We can do an analysis and get back to you on that.
