The untold story of Walker's plan is that it will accelerate the state's race to the bottom as a low-wage, low-skill economy
....Not surprisingly, Walker is playing to the unholy coalition of big money, government administration and judiciary that already gave us the highest level of economic inequality since the depression. The US is closer than it has ever been to becoming a plutocratic state and country. Such policies are accelerating the decline and preventing the appropriate investment in future, new knowledge-based economy stars.
So, in the "best case" scenario, Wisconsin will attract more low-paying jobs. In the worst case, the state will not get even that, since it will be competing with Ohio and New Jersey in a race to the bottom. Shouldn't the state and chambers of commerce develop policies to support small businesses, instead of subsidising large corporations (as it may do, for example, if it were to allow Koch Industries and other companies to purchase state-owned power plants in non-bid contracts), so that those higher-paying jobs that will keep graduates in Wisconsin are created?
Over the last 30 years, the economic inequality, rate of poverty and unemployment have all risen slowly but steadily, while the enrichment of the few has continued unabated â€“ amplified by the quiet collaboration of both political parties and the three branches of the government.03-02-2011, 01:15 PM #36
