Wisconsin right-to-scab law ruled unconstitutional

Good news, good news, Boss!

Wisconsin's Tea Party-backed "right-to-work" law has just been ruled unconstitutional by a Dane County court. Labor groups had argued that the law was an illegal seizure of unions' property because it forced unions to fund nonunion labor.

Don't uncork the bubble gum just yet, because this ruling is being appealed. There's no guarantee the decision will stick, given higher courts' determination to put ideology before law.
