Public Pension Cuts Exempt Police and Firefighters — In 2011, Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin introduced a bill that would roll back collective bargaining rights for government workers and require them to contribute more toward their own pensions and health coverage. He excluded police officers and firefighters from the legislation, known as Act 10, which he signed the following month.

T-Mobile Policy Violated Labor Law, Judge Rules — A National Labor Relations Board judge ruled on Wednesday that the personnel policies of the wireless carrier T-Mobile violate United States labor law by restricting workers' ability to organize, setting a potentially important precedent for unions.

Police Officers and Firefighters Are Exceptions to New Public Sector Rules — In recent weeks, Gov.

Ted Strickland Lost-But He Proved That Populism Could Have Saved the Democrats — Guest post by Noam Scheiber:] For months now, a variety of left-leaning pundits have warned Democrats to strike a more populist tone if they want to survive politically.

De Blasio, Obama and a Flawed Vision of Liberalism — MAYOR BILL DE BLASIO recently got some good news in his standoff with the Police Department. In the first major poll conducted after the high-profile murder of two patrolmen, 69 percent of New Yorkers said they objected to police officers' turning their backs on the mayor at their colleagues' funerals, while 77 percent rejected a union boss's accusation that the mayor shared blame for the deaths.

Obama Inauguration 2013 Speech: He Was Always a Liberal, But Now He's Defending Liberalism — Much of the reaction to the president's speech so far has taken the form: He used to be obsessed with processwith driving the rancor and cynicism out of politics-whereas today he set aside the procedural mumbo-jumbo and tipped his ideological hand. As James Fallows put it: "[I]t's almost as if he ...

Meet Tommy Goldstein — Over the last three decades, the legal system has undergone a dramatic democratization process. Every jealous ex-wife, aggrieved former burger-flipper, and small-town whiplash victim now has access to legal talent, and four of the most common words on television are "have you been injured?" But only recently has democracy finally come to the Supreme Court.
