Cheese heads rule. We beat all your teams. Now we are going after the overpaid. A Milwaukee teacher receives over 100K in pay and benefits and produces less than 50% graduation rates. Could you keep your job if you only gave a 50% effort. The battle starts in Wisconsin then comes to your state. Take your country back!
A budget issue is about money, how much cut is needed and the categories it is cut from.
It is not about negotiation rights or ability to collectivel;y bargain.
Wisconsin governor is mixing the two and hoping you are to stupid to think about it. He wants to gut the rights of people to unionize in order to gain long term political funding advantages to his party by eliminating funds from unions who generally support the other party.
He balmes unions for driving up costs but he fails to say that unions can only negotiate. It was agreeing to what they asked for in the past that drove up costs not the act of asking.
You make some extremely good points. I agree with you. What you failed to mention is the relationship that he Unions have had over the years with those very poiticians who are agreeing to their demands. Until recently in Wisconsin, the Democrat party was the group agreeing to all of the extremely generous demands of the Union. the Unions in turn were contributing large amounts of money to their re-election campaigns. Do you think there might be a "quid pro quo" there?
