Most Americans say Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker is on the wrong side of the collective bargaining debate.
About 62 percent of Americans say it is unacceptable for states to eliminate employee’s collective bargaining rights, according to a new poll released by NBC and the Wall Street Journal Wednesday.
Last week, a poll conducted by USA Today/Gallup also found wide-spread support for public workers.
About 68 percent of Americans say they find it acceptable for states to require public employees to contribute more of their pay for retirement benefits. Also, 63 percent say they were okay with public employees paying more for their health benefits.
Let’s hope other state governors take in consideration how most Americans feel about collective bargaining.
Gov. Walker, are you listening?
