I’m inclined to agree with the caution suggested by yoboba (no relation, despite the ears). Reagan set the precedent for union busting, and if the same testosterone fuelled psychosis is still prevalent in the GOP psyche today, they could well TRY to use Wisconsin as a test bed for similar treatment. Whether they succeed will be down to just how much local support the public workers really have. From the authoritarians point of view; So what if it means shutting down the schools for 6 months while they recruit blackleg teachers to the cause. It would mean trouble free oppression of workers for a couple of decades. That’s got to be worth a few percent on the polls…
