And, in an executive order that was quietly released, Gov. Scott Walker recently suspended rules requiring contractors on state construction projects to employ workers under the state’s apprenticeship program. The rules have existed since 1971. One Milwaukee-area lawmaker is protesting Walker’s order, saying it will hurt efforts to employ minorities in the construction trades in Wisconsin.

House Republicans have introduced legislation that, if passed into law, would deny food stamp assistance to any family member of a striking worker.
Notwithstanding any other provision of law, no member of a family unit shall participate in the food stamp program at any time that any able bodied work eligible adult member of such household is on strike on strike as defined by the Labor Management Relations Act 1947, because of a labor dispute.It's clear Walker hates women, minorities, children, probably kittens, too. But the extent to which those controlling him REALLY hate women, minorities, children and probably all domestic animals, is starting to emerge. This is one ugly picture.
