Life without unions

Without the pesky unions jumping up and down with their tedious moans about fairness and discrimination and all that boring red tape, you can be a creative employer.

Take the state of Wisconsin, for instance, which just abolished all its workers' rights. In this free-market paradise, things like this happen. I for one intend to move there and make some friends:

Today, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reveals that Walker is using state funds to pay more than $81,500 a year to the 26-year-old son of a major campaign donor with no college degree and two drunken-driving convictions.
Despite having almost no management experience, UW Madison college dropout Brian Deschane now oversees state environmental and regulatory issues and manages dozens of Commerce Department employees. After only two months on the job, Deschane has already received a 26 percent pay raise and a promotion.
You might call this corruption, but me and my friends in the Republican Party call it freedom.

seriously, i would love that guy's job. i'd probably be just as shit at it as he is, so i'd settle for a 25% payrise in 2 months.
