But Matt Patterson, labor analyst with the conservative Competitive Enterprise Institute, claimed the vote was a sign that workers were turning their backs on the unions.
“The news today proves what unions have long feared — that when workers are actually given a free and fair choice, they will often choose opt out of union membership altogether,” he said.
“The public at large — and an increasing number of union members — have become wise to the fact labor unions stifle innovation and burden governments and businesses with unsustainable costs and regulations.”
So what’s this mean for the Kenosha union? For now, not a lot.
