    We begin with an analysis of why the unions failed in Wisconsin with one third of union voters supporting Governor Walker along with nearly half of voters from union households. Les Leopold the Director of the Labor Institute and a strategic consultant to the Blue-Green Alliance of trade unions and environmental organizations joins us to discuss why a lot of working Americans do not support labor at a time of high unemployment and record disparity in wealth and opportunity in America.

    Then we examine the impact of Citizens United on the Wisconsin vote with a nationally recognized expert on election law and campaign finance regulation. Richard Hasen, the Chancellor’s Professor of Law and Political Science at the University of California, Irvine joins us to discuss the unfettered flow of outside money into Wisconsin, and the disparity between the financial clout of corporations and unions.
