The media coverage and debate about the protests in Wisconsin over the Governor's plan to remove public sector collective bargaining rights has been extremely engaging. It's been frustrating to see it at times superficial and fascinating when at times it's been quite in depth. I have to admit that watching and reading it all has been both stressful and energizing--and public sector labor law isn't even really my field, although I am mostly a product of public schools, was a government worker for most of my time in practice, my parents have been public workers for much of their working lives (different government), and my grandparents too, were public workers (yet a third government), so I feel connected to the issue.
And so suitable for a Friday, when we all likely need some levity to relieve the stress, enjoy the 100 Best Protest Signs at the Wisconsin Capitol courtesy of Buzzfeed. My favorite, shown above, are the anguished snowpeople.
