The adventure taking place in Wisconsin is rather interesting.
Collective bargaining is supposed to be a process in which a representative of an employer and a representative of the employees sit around a table and hammer out an agreement that is satisfactory and acceptable to both parties.
It would appear that in Wisconsin, the governor is declaring he and past governors and their staffs have been incompetent negotiators and have been giving away the store. The governor's apparent solution to this ineptness is to prevent the employees' negotiators from even coming to the store.
The more appropriate solution may be to replace the governor's staff with competent negotiators who have the negotiating skills to protect the store. With such a poor negotiating record, one has to wonder what other parts of the store incompetent Wisconsin negotiators have given away.
