The Hill blog reports the following tweet was made by Scott Walker
Happy Labor DayThis is a truly ironic tweet from a man who has done more try to destroy organized labor than most governors. He is a living symbol of everything that is wrong with the Koch Brothers inspired Tea Party movement.
Scott Walker's philosophy about labor does not help labor markets in this country. Rather, it leads to a spiral of destruction that drives wage downward and keeps the country in stagnant growth in the labor market. Such a philosophy will often be a force that will lead to ruination of capitalism instead of making a prosperous free market system. Scott Walker does not realize this and he has no idea what the labor movement has done for this country. He should read Howard Zinn's books to see what the labor movement really did to achieve economic equality for the middle school. Instead, he wants to read Austrian economics which promotes the interest of the wealthy capitalist elites.
Instead of tweeting "Happy Labor Day!", he should have tweeted - "I am a dumbass and I have no clue what labor day is all about."
