Florida Gov. Rick Scott says collective bargaining shouldn't be a constitutionally protected right in Florida, the St. Petersburg Times rick,scott,florida,collective,bargainingreports.

Collective bargaining is the key issue in the protests in Wisconsin, and Scott told Bloomberg TV he'd like to see Florida's Constitution changed so that it no longer guarantees workers the right to collective bargaining.

"It'd be great to be able to change it,'' Scott said. "Our state workers don't pay for anything into their pension plan. And we can't afford that — it's not fair to taxpayers. If you didn't have collective bargaining, would it be better for the state? Absolutely."
