It's utter selfishness and another thing people going to protest from other states should but out, unless you live in Wisconsin stick to your own states affairs, chances are they may be worse off. I can say this coming from NY and it's a huge cluster**** here.

So , what is the Governor to do now ? Call out the State National Guard to " Police " The Police ?
For a second straight Saturday, tens of thousands of protesters have filled the streets around the state Capitol in what organizers hope will be the largest day yet in the continuing struggle to stop Gov. Scott Walker's plan to essentially end collective bargaining rights for most public employees.
Madison police spokesman Joel DeSpain said the number of protesters around the Capitol is on the scale of last Saturday's peak crowd of an estimated 68,000 and could swell even more for a 3 p.m. rally.
"We've had no problems," DeSpain said, adding that officers are again committed to keeping the Square "safe for democracy."
Law enforcement officers said they are only letting people into the Capitol as others exit.

Nope. If I were Walker, I'd start layoffs Monday morning.

basically they have 2 options:
1) Accept the pay cuts
2) Lose their jobs when the legislature cuts spending
