Governor Scott Walker issued the following statement today after the Wisconsin Court of Appeals District III ruled Wisconsin’s Right to Work law as constitutional, reversing a previous decision by a lower court.

“The purchase of any service should be voluntary and not coerced.  Wisconsin’s Right to Work law protects freedom, not special interests.  I applaud the court in affirming the constitutional right of all Wisconsin workers to be free to choose whether they want to join a union or financially support a union.  Freedom to work, along with investments in education and worker training, are among the many reasons businesses around the world are choosing the benefits of establishing operations in our state.”

    The “Right to Work” act should be re-titled the “Right to Work Two Jobs and Still Live Below the Poverty Line” act.

    I agree with Ed Werstein….unions are about employee protection….say goodbye to that….
