It’s now known to the world that I am not a budding poet. That said, for the past week, it’s been known to me that as many as 300 Milwaukee County workers were waiting with dread and anticipation for word of whether they would be getting pink slips straight from Scott Walker.
Now comes word that the county workers are just yo-yos that can be casually tossed about by the county exec. The decision, he decided, will not be made now, but perhaps in August. That’s two more month’s work and pay, and two more months of wait and dismay. There’s nothing like waiting to hear if your job’s gotten the axe, or for your life’s path to be determined like that.
Thank you, Scott Walker, for making my friend’s lives a little bit of living hell. I hope it helps you in the Republican primary.
