If a fringe left whack job like democrat Gov. Jerry Brown can get it... why couldn't Ridgefield Barbie (Jaime Herrera)?

One of the many reaons to oppose Jaime Herrera's election to anything was her abysmal performance while in the Legislature: She co-sponsored and supported SEIU legislation that would have required both the forced unionized of child care workers here in the state of Washington while requiring the day care owners to pay those worker's union dues.

Why would she do that? This kind of fringe-left idiocy has gone unexplained but not unoticed by those actually paying attention... which brings us to this:

California Gov. Brown Vetoes Child-Care Unionization

Wednesday, 05 Oct 2011 12:37 AM

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — California Gov. Jerry Brown, saying "no" to the organized labor groups that helped elect him, vetoed a bill on Tuesday to allow some child-care workers to unionize.
The Democratic governor said that while the bill's goal was laudable, its price tag was too high.
"Maintaining the quality and affordability of child care is a very important goal. So too is making sure that working conditions are decent and fair for those who take care of our children," Brown wrote in his veto message.
"Today California, like the nation itself, is facing huge budget challenges. Given that reality, I am reluctant to embark on a program of this magnitude and potential cost."
About half of California's estimated 80,000 child-care providers would have been affected by the legislation, which applied only to those workers within state programs subsidizing a family's child-care costs.
The ability to organize child-care workers has been a long-time goal of the state's major public employee unions -- the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees and the Service Employees International Union, which already represents many of the state's in-home caregivers.
Similar measures were vetoed three times previously by former Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, a Republican.
Brown signed another budget-related measure on Tuesday allowing nonprofits to operate state parks, a strategy aimed at preventing the slated closure of some 70 parks in 2012 because of budget cuts.

If someone like Jerry Brown could figure out the obvious outcome of this scam... why couldn't the Camas Manikin?
