View Full Version : Wisconsin Unions Reverse Decision to Bar Republicans from Labor Day Parade

After barring Republican officials from their local Labor Day event, a group of unions in Wisconsin decided not to rain on the parade.

The Marathon County Labor Council, a coalition of unions which sponsors the parade in Wassau, Wis., had excluded Republican politicians from participating in a Labor Day parade in retaliation for legislation earlier this year that weakened the collective bargaining power of public employee unions.

But the group reversed the decision late Tuesday after Wausau Mayor Jim Tipple threatened to withhold financial support for the parade if everyone could not participate.

Labor Council President Randy Radtke issued a statement to the local newspaper that Republicans will be allowed to march in the parade “because we don’t want to have community groups and school bands affected.”

Yeah, right, it was because they don't 'school bands' affected. :rolleyes: More like they want the funding, and the unions are already on the average Winconsonian's shit list.

The Democraps come out with phony baloney talking points regarding lifting the ban. Money talks and bull shit walks.
