SORT BY Relevancy
Wisconsin's Republican lead legislature has decided to call a special session to pass right to work. We discuss right to work and what it means for wisconsin. We also discuss Governor Walker's presidential run as well as Former Mayor Guliani's Obama hate.
This Saturday (March 21), thanks to feedback, we will cover in depth; Wisconsin's Governor Walker's recent signing of its Right-to-Work law, which as expected, has been excoriated by the left, as "anti-union".
If you accept the narrative, that labor/working is completely and inextricably associated with unions, you would agree.
But, are unions necessary today? Why or why not?
Should the worker be held hostage by unions, by being forced to join them and pay dues?
We also want to examine the motivation and motivators behind the attacks on Bill Cosby; the accusations of drugging/rape, after 30-40 years.
Barack Obama thinks voting should be mandatory for Americans, though I'll take the liberty to say that he also means "non-Americans (i.e. illegal immigrants).
Yeah, I know, "people died, to protect our [black people's] right to vote, so this should be pretty academic.
BUT, since when does a right become a requirement?
Other issues are on the table, both domestic and international, so let's get ready to
GRAB THE BRACH OF CRITICAL DISCOURSE!
"Right to Work" incites anger among Union leaders who oppose it based on a belief that it cuts into a worker's right to collective bargaining.
But many feel forced unionization of jobs actually inhibits job growth because it increases the wages and benefits for employees, which makes for fewer employees being hired.
Join the debate as we discuss the FACTS about Right to Work with Terry Bowman, founder of Union Conservatives, a 501(c)4 pro-union organization whose goal is to give a voice to union members who embarace conservative principles and protects them against forced political contributions .

Have you had your healthy dose of reality lately? There are always at least two sides to every story. Have you ever wondered how someone, who saw the same thing you did, walked away telling a vastly different story? Which version was correct? Which one was the REAL story? Actually, both are! It’s just a matter of perspective. Joe takes the issues… especially the controversial issues (politics, prejudice, religion, illegal immigration)… and brings in people from different sides to share their viewpoint. This is definitely not a fluff piece. And while no one is attacked, the questions are hard-hitting. But the conversation is always respectful and you’re sure to learn something new, even if you don’t agree! If you’ve always wondered how the “other side” thinks and how they’ve arrived at their “stand”, then this is the show for you!
It’s not the right side, it’s not the wrong side, but the REAL side of the issues!
Deep blue Wisconsin recently became a right-to work state under Scott Walker’s leadership. Despite the hue and cry from unions, Governor Walker insists that the law will benefit the economy by attracting new businesses to Wisconsin. And he’s right.
According to Heritage, right-to-work states are much more attractive for business investment. Unionized firms earn lower profits, invest less and create fewer jobs than comparable nonunion firms.
