State powers were not expanded. The state government of Wisconsin has no more power over its people than it did before Act 10 was passed. The people of Wisconsin lost zero constitutional rights against the powers of the state.
The reduction of power was experienced, appropriately, by the disgusting public sector unions who had, in collusion with Democrats and other politicians, for decades, abused their power to apply special statutory rights such as collective bargaining (now, thankfully eliminated) to extort ever-increasing unjustifiable benefits from the subgroup of the people of Wisconsin known as state income tax payers.
That is such a moderate opinion on collective bargaining.
