That being said, I thought I would give a shout out to my home state. In Wisconsin, there has been a long, tiring clash concerning Scott Walker & the recent hefty cutbacks for state workers. Essentially, privatized businesses are increasingly better off, teachers are suffering from fewer benefits & the loss of collective bargaining. Public schools are obviously affected.
The tension & anger has been near tangible. The distress has been compounding until citizens decided to do something about their issues. After months of rallies, protests & the like, the recall Walker petition has one million signatures.
