It’s official—the Wisconsin Supreme Court has re-instated Scott Walker’s union-busting “Budget Repair Bill” as the law of the land. Despite months of coordinated protests by unions, lawmakers and Wisconsinites, it is now illegal for public workers to collectively bargain in the state.

Last night on The Ed Show, Ed Schultz spoke with John Nichols about what this moment means for labor rights in Wisconsin, and how the new law’s severity can be turned into fuel for the recall campaigns currently underway for many of the Republican lawmakers who helped force the bill through.
