Because of this stance, the voters of Wisconsin elected him Governor in 2010, with a 6%, 124,000+ vote margin. The electorate not only elected Walker, they endorsed his views that he has always made clear throughout his political career.
If Democrats want to oppose his views, that is their right, but it is downright sleazy to ditch the state senate, the capital, and the state, in order to try to frustrate the process. This behavior amounts to open defiance of the will of the voters. It seeks to frustrate government via temper tantrum. The private economy (America) has tightened their belts and many citizens are unemployed as a result. Public employees (existing to serve Americans) have not felt this level of economic downsizing and we are now seeing the result of an honest politician trying to do his part to ensure equality.
The teachers, following the bad example set by their elected officials, are striking by "sick out", fraudulently obtaining "sick notes" from doctors committing malpractice. Where is Ronald Reagan or any other strong President when you need him? The cheating teachers, the criminal doctors, the sleazy politicians gaming the system, should all be fired and replaced by people who want the jobs.
"But we'll never find enough qualified air traffic controllers to fill those important seats!"
Trust me, there are plenty of qualified teachers, doctors, and politicians to replace those that put their own well-being before their responsibilities. If Wisconsin's voters said ""no", then the answer is ""no". Make your voice heard and vote again next time. This is America. The systems are in place to do it without cheating.
