Democracy Now: Walker Gov. Officials Defy Court Injunction to Implement Anti-Union Law

Officials in the administration of Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker are vowing to enforce the state’s anti-union law despite a court injunction re-issued this week. On Wednesday, Wisconsin’s Department of Administration Secretary said he views the law as in effect, echoing comments from the state’s attorney general. Dane County Circuit Judge Maryann Sumi has frozen the law’s implementation pending several appeals. Judge Sumi has threatened sanctions for any attempts to disobey her ruling. Enacting the law would result in an average 8 percent cut to public employees’ April 21 paychecks.
