Excellent Blog on Walker's Underhanded Tactics
Just a quick link to a really excellent blog post breaking down the tactics being utilized by Scott Walker,
asshole Governor of Wisconsin, to surreptitiously bring private prisons to his state. In a nutshell; he's cutting positions and pay across the board in the prison system and facilities are becoming short-staffed and costing significantly more to operate as an increasing percentage of the labor is overtime. He's then going to use the poor performance and high costs of the system that he screwed up to justify bringing in private prisons, likely the GEO Group, which has already had representatives meet with Walker's staff. He, along with the rest of the GOP establishment, is continuing to erode the rights of employees and dismantle unions so he can hand out lucrative government contracts to his financial backers.
