Hell, I Could Have Written this Brief

From the archives:

Oh, where to begin here…

Collective Bargaining is a Right – No. It’s not.

It was granted by an act of the legislature in 1959 and signed into law by then-Governor Gaylord Nelson.  What the legislature giveth, the legislature can taketh away.  (See: Prohibition, Repeals of an number of past laws, and other related area.)

Now, some in Wisconsin might see Gaylord Nelson as some sort of God; when in reality he was a mere mortal.  And the acts of man are not forever.

From the Journal Sentinel‘s report on the state answering the union’s filing into federal court:

Lawyers for the state also argue that the suit is flawed. “Plaintiffs continually refer to the ‘right’ of state and municipal employees to collectively bargain. Despite this effort to frame the issues in a more favorable light, it is quite clear that collective bargaining by state and municipal employees is not a fundamental right. Rather, it is a privilege granted by the state in its sole discretion and at its convenience,” the response states.

If only it weren’t for the student loans and the worst job market for law school graduates EVAH!
