For years, a Wisconsin Indian tribe has tried to open a new casino hundreds of miles from its reservation. The controversy over the casino has encouraged the tribe to cut deals with labor bosses in which the unions trade their political support for the tribe’s agreement to help coerce casino workers into joining unions. Now Gov. Walker must decide whether to approve the proposed casino. Governor Walker has set three criteria for approval of any new casino, but it is unclear whether his criteria have been met. The casino would represent the first fully unionized casino in Wisconsin. Providing a path that leads to the forced unionization of employees through “card check” or by any other method should not be tolerated in a free society.
