Workplace Discrimination Gets Official Wink Of Approval In Wisconsin


By ending financial awards that compensated victims of workplace discrimination and sent a deterrent message to arrogant employers.

After all, job creators need just the right environment in which to work their magic.

It's another blow to fair play, and worker and minority rights - - begun a year ago when Walker dropped his "bomb" on public sector collective bargaining: Wisconsin's far-right Legislature finished approvals Tuesday for a bill that will end court-ordered financial awards to victims of workplace discrimination.

Walker and his legislative allies are pushing every pro-1% bill in sight - - before recall elections - - to lock in shifts in the playing field advantage towards corporate power and against workers and members of groups historically with less power.
