I’m coming in on this 7 years late, but I agree with this article, except the statement that “I suspect the gender and racial impacts of union-busting never consciously crossed Gov. Walker’s mind.” I disagree. I’m sure that was the FIRST thing on his mind, knowing that pitting private sector (white male) unions against public sector unions (after exempting police & firefighters, largely women) is a perfect way to divide & conquer. Seven years later, this is still the elephant in the room that no one is discussing, even though the Repubs continue to go after teachers’ unions. It’s easy to convince people that women do not deserve living wages & benefits.
