From an outside perspective, what do you think of the new Wisconsin Bill and the protesters?

Protests are still blowing up in Wisconsin, my high school has had two walk outs (most kids just wanted out of class). From what I understand, the bill is taking away the ability to bargin over a set amount (not fully taking it way) and making the government workers pay more in health care and pension. I just want to know the opinions of all the states watching all this happen. I deffinantly know all the opinion of the people here. What do you think?
