Act 10 at 10: Remembering the riots

By Bill Osmulski, MacIver News Service

MADISON — It’s been 10 years since Gov. Scott Walker and the Republican state legislature permanently fix the state’s financial crisis by passing Act 10. The root of the problem was in unsustainable collective bargaining agreements. It took a lot of courage to take on the unions, and they had no idea what they were in for. However, because they stuck to their principles, Wisconsin no longer faces a budget crisis every two years – it now enjoys regular budget surpluses.

The unions, and their Democrat allies, did everything they could to stop the reforms. They unleashed a mob on the capitol that occupied the building for three weeks and attempted to intimidate Republican lawmakers into caving. No matter how bad the situation got, Walker never called out the military and the police generally took a hands-off approach to the situation.

Here are the original MacIver News Service reports that chronicled the Act 10 Riots at MacIverinsitute.com
