Hudson Residents Greet Scott Walker, No Cheers

Hudson Wisconsin, a rivertown with a population 11,900, turned out a good sized group to protest Walker's visit to a heavy equipment manufacturer. During his visit, Walker said that since some private sector workers have accepted lower wages for their work, everyone else will have to make sacrifices.

Why is it that folks who think they're "taxed enough already" claiming they can no longer afford to pay an extra dime in taxes are so eager to have thousands of dollars in wages stripped away from their peers even in the private sector?

Democurmudgeon Excerpt:
As their lives get more miserable and job security, wages and benefits disappear, instead of fighting an oppressive business model, they support policies that would drag everyone down to their level. For a party that wants to keep all their hard earned money, they’re sure anxious to take away the hard earned income of others, just so we can all “sacrifice” together.

This seems to be a difficult concept for many to understand, that lowering wages has nearly the same effect as raising taxes on workers pockets. Less money means less demand. Less demand means fewer workers. The only thing fiercely defended is the "party's" profit margin.
