MADISON— Republican presidential candidate Scott Walker's presidential run started when he took on labor. Now, he hopes another fight with unions can get his campaign back on track.
"We've got a plan to wreak havoc on Washington and our plan starts on day one," said Walker.
It's Scott Walker's new campaign catch phrase. His first stop? An old foe -- labor unions. Walker wants to eliminate federal unions -- and the National Labor Relations Board.
"Well, unfortunately this won't wreak so much havoc on Washington as it will in every one of the 50 states," said Nola Cross, a Milwaukee attorney who specializes in employment law.
Cross says Walker's plan was not well thought out. She says his plan would transfer labor cases to either a less-experienced board or the courts.
"The courts are very, very, very clogged. Getting into the courts and getting a trial within a couple years, you're lucky," said Cross.
Walker would ask Congress to create a nation right-to-work law. He wants to repeal prevailing wage laws, which set a minimum wage for construction projects and more.
Ahead of Monday evening's speech in Las Vegas, Walker released a promotional video. It talks up the issue that vaulted Walker to the national stage -- Act 10.
As for right-to-work, Walker did not want to talk about such a law in Wisconsin for years. It is now law in Wisconsin -- and Walker wants to take it nationwide.
