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.”
