NYTimes – Paul Krugman – Unions Are The Only Counterweight To Oligarchy


“But (Governor) Walker is not interested in making a deal…He has made it clear that rather than bargaining with workers, he wants to end workers ability to bargain.”

“What Mr. Walker and his backers are trying to do is to make Wisconsin–and eventually,America–less of a functioning democracy and more of a third world oligarchy.”

“Will the attack on unions succeed?I don’t know. But anyone who cares about retaining government of the people and by the people should hope that it does not.”
