Monday on Lake Effect: Economist's Take on Right-to-Work, Jock Tax, Polka Culture

Monday on Lake Effect:

An economist’s take on how a right-to-work law would impact Wisconsin. Then, how the governor’s plan for a so called “jock tax” is being felt as far away as Seattle and the NHL. Photographer Dick Blau talks about his secret to documenting Wisconsin’s polka culture. And cellist Robert Cohen remembers when he found the right instrument.
