Weekends are a necessity for working people. (And if you're pushing this, I bet you're not giving up YOUR weekends, now, are you? Hypocritical of you to think others should.)

Typical of this Republican legislature!


is it just a coincidence that 999 turned upside down is 666? Just wondering.


All I got out of this article is that any douche bag with a keyboard can post their hateful and biased rhetoric garbage speech with no facts, references or links to even slightly support the wasted space this occupies. It's such garbage the author didn't even have the nerve to put their name on it. Doucebaggery at its finest. Everyone is now dumber for wasting a minute to read your sniveling article.


You Idiots voted for this and YOU desearve every bit of it,,,and DONT CLAIM THAT YOU WERE NOT WARNED

The states employers can now offer as much overtime as they want, to employees, including weekends. It is not right that employers can mandate a work schedule, without a day of rest. Even under current laws they can make people work 13 days in a row which is obscene. Employers need to consider their employees as real people with a life outside of work, and the state should as well.

I love unions and I’m a friend of labor. I want everyone to know that the reason why the brutality of 999 is is going on in Wisconsin. & elsewhere in other forms is explained to in “Ethics Is a Force!–Songs about Labor” If you are in NYC on Sun., June 12, I urge you not to miss this great musical & educational event. ‪http://bit.ly/1E6FKRe
