Exactly two years ago, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker "dropped the bomb" and unveiled Act 10 aka "Budget Repair Bill", which effectively ended collective bargaining in Wisconsin.  On this anniversary, Discover Janesville brings you a panel discussion about the effects of Act 10 on the union movement and its ability to influence political process.  Participating in discussion are Assembly Minority Leader Rep. Peter Barca (D) Kenosha, WEAC Vice-President Betsy Kippers and Martha Merrill, Lead Research Analyst for AFSCME Wisconsin Council 40.  Special thanks to Walworth County Democratic Party for organizing this discussion.  Listen to every podcast and watch every interview at www.DiscoverJanesville.com and "like" the show on Facebook!
