WI state workers getting shafted

Walker takes broad swipe at public employee unions

:-/

This equates a 7.5% pay cut for me. As well as the union being dismantled. I'm not a huge fan of the union, but it has prevented our benefits and wages from being eviscerated by every two-bit republican.

Another step towards making America a tyranny state. Apparently as citizens of a democratic society, our opinions and concerns no longer count.

apparently of all the things wrong with this country; out of all the problems we have; the number one thing (according to republicans) is public employees who make 50,000 dollars a year. they should take pay cuts. meanwhile bigger bonuses for wall street execs are also in order. we need to go back to the good old days of the 1870's.

While I don't have major issues with public employee unions in general, there are some major issue with the teacher and police unions around here. Our cops earn ~ $115k after 5 years. Civil service is great and all but $115k is double what the average college grad is making. It's not like Suffolk County is a gangland....

Sorry to hear you got stiffed.

Absolutely dude. It seems like every single kid my age around here wants to be a cop or a teacher, and the reason is easy to see.

fuck man that's crazy. I have trouble believing they make that much. I'm sure they do though. I'll take your word for it. Just saying I've never heard of any cops or teachers making anything remotely close to that type of salary. cops and teachers in philly make like 35K a year . and they have to arrest crackheads and dodge bullets every time they go to work

I don't think thats part of a normal union policy, I think that's part of local governmental corruption... That sounds like where I used to live, Vallejo,CA. The government was so corrupted there, the police chief was getting paid like 400k a year, and the city ended up going bankrupt, despite selling a major theme-park.

It's both Suffolk and Nassau counties actually (the entire island minus NYC). Second highest paid cops in the country.
