The Taxpayers say "no!"

This is getting out of hand, Scott Walker needs to take the upper hand and get control back. Here is how he should handle the situation. I don't know if anyone has taken this bent or not yet. Demand that the union employees get back to work. If they do not show up at their positions tomorrow then he has no recourse but to follow this plan:
1. the union have broken their contracts by staging an illegal strike/walkout/blueday, which is strictly forbidden in their contracts. And because they cannot be trusted to sign any more contracts, this will negate the need for curtail collective bargaining; the unions will never be allowed to have a seat at the table again because they will never be allowed to sign another contract with the state into perpetuity.
2. All the current union employees that are on the picket/protest lines will be fired, and they will never be allowed to hold another government job because they cannot sign a contract because they cannot uphold a contract.
3. Let them know that there will be no coddling them. They have made a decision to break their contracts, they will be held accountable for their actions and the restrictions will be severe.
Of course they can prevent these actions from being taken by simply going back to work and allowing the democratic process to run its course.
Also, the legislature needs to deal with the runaway Senators harshly.

WI statue: 946.12 Misconduct in public office. Any public officer or public employee who does any of the following is guilty of a Class I felony:
(1) Intentionally fails or refuses to perform a known mandatory, nondiscretionary, ministerial duty of the officer's or employee's office or employment within the time or in the manner required by law.

This law declares that the actions of the Senators is a felony. They are not simply playing a waiting game, they are breaking the law (not that that bothers the liberals), and in a nation that follows the rule of law, they simply cannot be allowed to get away with their actions. They are felons, the penalties are harsh, and not only are large fines involved, but prison-time is mandated.
We give them one more opportunity to return to the state to do their job or they will be investigated and impeached. They will lose their seats, and their pensions, they will lose their freedom to participate in society, they will lose their right to vote and hold public office, to carry firearms, to protest and to assemble. By not returning immediately, it will be determined that they have vacated their seat voluntarily and will be immediately replaced with appointments made by the governor until an election can be held. And the business of the government will be carried out with the replacement Senators.
Now is not the time to play nicey-nicey with these law breakers. Make them fully aware that they lost the last elections, and that no matter how they FEEL, they are in the minority and majority rules is the law of the land. They will lose their privilege to sit at the bargaining table either way, there is no middle ground, they will not be allowed to get away with their illegal actions.
