'Bout the Govt. Union Thing in Wisconsin

I'm from Wisconsin. The issue really is, when will all parties get together and try to fix the mess that's tearing our Country apart. Obama started the bullying the first day in office. What he shuda done was extend an olive branch out to the other two parties. Not put on boxing gloves and remind everyone he's the boss now. So now we have Scott Walker and his thugs pulling the same crap. Rumor is, folks, is that old money is keeping us afloat and when that's all used up we will be in turmoil. And I am a glass half full guy lol.

I believe you're correct, what's happening in Wisconsin is what's tearing our Country apart, politics and power.


but what exactly is they can't compromise? In the mean time I will do some online research and see what I can find

I do watch the news, well, when I get a chance, but when I do watch the news, fox news or cnn, one side says one thing, the other side says something different totally twisted..or whatever

so government unions want more money
Government doesn't have the money they want because the state is running out of money. I read online that scott walker was a dictator

all collective bargaining rights would be removed for state and local public employees starting July 1, except when it comes to wages.

Bargaining rights such as legal rights of unions and associations to represent their members in collective bargaining, and in other negotiations with the employers.


But any salary increase they seek could be no more than the consumer price index, unless voters in the affected jurisdiction approved a higher raise.

so no more than the consumer price index, why? because there's no money
and that's why people are upset?

Contracts would be limited to one year and wages would be frozen until the next contract is settled.
so how long is usually a normal contract? freeze the wages, there's no money as far as we know

Public employers would be prohibited from collecting union dues and members of collective bargaining units would not be required to pay dues.
wow

The proposal would effectively remove unions’ right to negotiate in any meaningful way. Local law enforcement and fire employees, as well as state troopers and inspectors would be exempt.

so unions can no longer negotiate anything... unions gone. where I work, there's no union. you protect your job by doing your work correctly and you have to meet the daily goal, if you can't perform as good as others, you can't work there. no union can save you. you have to be productive

Walker’s plan also calls for state employees to contribute 5.8 percent of their salaries to their pensions starting April 1.
I contribute to my 401K because if I don't, nobody will. I would like to have a little bit of money when I retire. the government cannot take care of everybody and especially if they're running out of money

They would have to contribute at least 12.6 percent toward their health care. Those two items would generate $30 million by July 1 and roughly $300 million over the next two years when combined with the other concessions.
I pay for my own health care, I don't need obama care

Why can't people just shut their yap and be thankful they have a job that puts food on the table?

Give a man fire, he'll be warm for a night. Light a man on fire, and he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

An apple a day, thrown hard enough, will keep anyone away.
