Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker is the first governor to survive a recall effort.  He took on the unions in the Dairy State and was the victor.  Steve Buckstein with the Cascade Policy Institute says union membership in Wisconsin has dropped in recent years.  “Now , as a  few days ago, it looks like Public Employees Union members has dropped by more than half.  The state no longer takes the union dues out of their paychecks.  The unions have to collect the funds themselves, which is the way it should be.”  Steve Buckstein was the guest on 1110 KBND's Lars Larson show on Tuesday.
