CHICAGO (Reuters) – The Kentucky Supreme Court on Thursday threw out a law aimed at addressing the state’s cash-strapped retirement system because it was improperly passed by the Republican-controlled legislature.
Democrats expected Walker to eliminate the state's 'prevailing wage' law requiring workers on public projects to be paid the established going rate for their labor. Instead of eliminating prevailing wage laws, Koch-Republicans' decided to eliminate weekends and impose a 'voluntary' 7-day work week.
The Koch Brothers are are launching a nationwide campaign to eliminate public sector workers' wages, pensions, sick pay, workers' compensation.
Republicans are on a tear to disable the federal government's ability to serve the people much like Republican-controlled states like Michigan and Florida.
