You stand in contradiction to your arguments...at one point you say union's wages are the problem in state finance...then in another you state union membership is low.

Let me educate you on facts, union membership earned you a 40 hour work week, minimum wage and work force safety standards.

Union membership has fallen since the 1980's when they came under attack by Republican ideology.

Since then ALL worker's pay has stagnated, safety standards have loosened, benefits have become nearly extinct and CEO's pay has expanded to the highest levels in this nations history.

So who is suffering? Not the big business owners, but the workers and small business that is supported by workers.

So Mizike, are you willing to give your employer your paycheck, because according to you, employers shouldn't have to pay a living wage, health benefits, our town should do without clean drinking water, sewer service, or anything else for that matter...THAT IS WHAT TAXES PAY FOR!!!!!

If you think a teacher's salary of 40,000. is outrageous, but a billionaire wants her workers to earn less income for the work SHE has benefited from, then you are a lost cause. THAT SAME BILLIONAIRE TOOK MY TAX DOLLARS for use in her business, but my children's education was cut!

I say you just mail your earnings to the wealthy out of state companies donating to Walker's campaign...forget voting they don't care what you want, they just want your money...THAT'S CLASS WARFARE!

There most certainly is class warfare going on, and the middle class has been loosing for 30 years and it's time to stand up, get involved, and vote!

Did you know Eleanor Roosevelt used to have Women's meetings at Conference point,
she once said,
"In the long run, we shape our lives, and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility".

Vote for integrity and community, VOTE BARRETT/MITCHELL!
