Should I be allowed to leave my workplace because I don't want to do a particular job? Of course not! So why should they be allowed to walk away from their jobs... a job they said they wanted if only we would elect them! Hypocrites!

They lie about illness and should be fired. That's a bad example to set for the kids.

First abolish the public employee unions; then abolish the the private sector unions; then we will have a two class nation-the poor and the rich. We maybe seeing the end of the middle class.

The anti-union bill is wrong; but the lawmakers should be at work FIGHTING it, rather than hiding out in hopes it will go away. They were "hired" by the people to argue for or against bills that come before them ... they should do their jobs.
