Earlier today the Wisconsin Supreme Court issued a 5-2 ruling which stated Governor Scott WAlker's signature policy is constitutional. The law was initially passed in 2011 but it angered a lot of people and the governor was made to stand for recall in 2012. He made history as the first governor in U.S. history to ever withstand a recall vote. The Act 10 law in essence requires that public employees contribute higher amounts toward their pension costs and health insurance. It also bars members from making automatic withdrawals from their paychecks and requires yearly elections to see if employees want the union to continue representing them. The Madison teachers union and the union which represents public workers in Milwaukee filed suit. They argued that the law violated the constitutional rights of the workers and failed to allow them free assembly or equal protection. Attorney Lester Pines was representing the teachers union and stated that the decision was not really a surprise since the court is basically made up of conservatives.
