Honadel Supports Collective-Bargaining Measure

Republican voted in favor of governor's bill.

Just , Oak Creek' s state representative, Republican Mark Honadel, cast his vote in favor of Gov. Scott Walker's budget-repair bill Thursday.

Honadel was one of 53 representatives supporting the bill. He that the cost of government has continued to grow because of collective bargaining, so widespread changes like this must be made. 

Forty-two members of the Assembly, including four Republicans, voted against the measure.

The Assembly's vote cleared the last hurdle for the much-controversial budget-repair bill, which now goes to Walker's desk for his signature. 

Debate over the bill has engulfed the state and captivated the country since Walker . Walker has said he will sign the measure, which takes away most collective bargaining rights for many public unions, as soon as possible.

I'm repling to Jill Check out the States that don't have collective Bargaining They are called Right to Work States I believe there are 22 Check them out and see if you really want to live there maybe if your retired they would look fine. I'd like to know how old you are and if you had a Union Member support you for your early childhood. I did and a mother also and they fled one of those Right to Work States to give their family a better life. How about Mississippi beautiful state but check out there ranking in education and wages, plus it was just in the paper as one of the unhappest states to reside it. Alabama, Arkansas check them out and you decide how our great state of Wisconsin is going to fair as a Right to Work State.

Union Busting is what the intention was from the very beginning. Oh I love how you told one of your callers "Your a smart girl why don't you go work in the private sector" She had to punk you to get you to take her call. I hope your proud of yourself. In your office in Madison I told then and I'll say it again it is a "right to have a union" and collectively bargain an agreement. I worked 32 years as a union member and every 3 years they sat down and worked out an agreement whats wrong with that it was" security" all you have now is uncertainty.

How can you call this union busting. You still have your precious union. The comment regarding min wage is rediculous. Wages are all relative if wages go up so does the cost of everything because it cost more to produce. When are people going to realize that union people are just puppets. The commercial about the NEA says it all... Out of the unions own mouth.."it's not about the children, it's about money and power." I say Shame on them and teachers..Do the math. You rock Mr. Honadel!!!!!

The Big Union THUGS have led to more people being laid off and or companys shut down in the last few years due to their lavish pensions and benefits that are COLLECTIVELY bargained for!! If I am not mistaking it is the wealthy business owners that provide jobs to the majority of us. Its called capitalism and if Im not mistaking that is what made this Country so GREAT!!! You see its people like you the big union supporters that are destroying this great nation!! Believe me the Unions once had a place in this great nation but today its BIG BUSINESS!! If they loose members they loose power in Washington. If they loose power in Washington they loose money!!! So your comments regarding the Koch brothers as being big supporters of Walker yes you are correct. Its the same game the unions play in supporting the DEMS!! Nobody likes change and those of you who have been part of a Union are so used to the GRAVY TRAIN while the rest of us are required to give more and more!! Guess what its coming to an end!!! You are just a puppet of the BIG UNION MONSTERS!! GO WALKER!!
