Wisconsin Governor Threatens to Mobilize National Guard Against Public Sector Unions Link above is to Huffpost, as its the first link on Google. I saw this on Fox during lunch with my wife, and I'm looking for a link there. Short story: Governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin is threatening to mobilize the National Guard against public sector unions. Walker has proposed massive cuts to the state budget and strict new laws meant to break the back of public sector unions, in particular, teacher's unions. He has curiously stated publicly that he will exempt police and firefighters from these new regulations (see this link), which is interesting because those are specifically the public sector unions that supported him in his election bid. Very interesting.
