WILL proudly fights for the right to earn a living free from government interference
Unions filed another Act 10 lawsuit in 2019, arguing that the law was unconstitutional because unions have a constitutional right to collectively bargain. We intervened on behalf of a teacher who objects to being forced to pay union dues to defend the law.
Wisconsin prohibits the sale of butter that has not met the approval of government taste testers, effectively banning imports such as the popular Kerrygold butter from Ireland. On behalf of consumers and a retailer, we challenged the law, which furthers no health or safety purpose.
Unions filed a lawsuit in federal court arguing that Wisconsin’s “Right to Work” law was an unlawful “taking” of their property right to non-members’ fees. We filed amicus briefs successfully arguing in support of Right to Work.
The State of Wisconsin thinks consumers need to be protected from low prices, and has passed a law prohibiting retailers from setting prices too low. It also requires some products to be sold at a substantial markup – a hidden tax on consumers that goes straight into the pockets of business owners. We sued to get rid of that law.
Wisconsin’s Right to Work law allowed employees to opt out of paying union dues on 30-days’ notice. Unions sued, arguing that violated a federal law saying that union dues can be locked in “up to one year”. We filed amicus briefs supporting the law.
Cities around the state use TIF districts as a way to give taxpayer funds to developers while claiming that the money is “free”. State law requires cities to follow very strict procedures in order to create TIF districts. When Eau Claire failed to follow those procedures, we sued to hold them accountable.
