Madison Chamber of Commerce thinks Walker is wrong

When the local Chamber of Commerce thinks you're being too anti-union, I think it shows you're in trouble.

The president of the Greater Madison Chamber of Commerce saying in part

The GMCC supports the work to address the state budget deficit and the efforts toward improving the state's economy.  That support ends at the adversarial way elected officials are approaching it.  Public policy issues of this magnitude should not be rushed through the legislative process.  Given this state's long history of collective bargaining, policy changes of this magnitude should be thoroughly debated for an adequate period of time, in good faith by both sides, with all potential consequences considered.  Currently, that is not happening.

Walker is quickly losing potential supporters - but still refuses to negotiate with state employees.
