Terrible loss of value. These people save lives and teach our children. They did not cause the recession-Wall Street and the Banking Industry did.

Yes, we need unions and we need unions to realize that many of their members should share a greater percentage of healthcare / pensions costs than they do now (teachers,police,firefighters etc.). The problem is not the unions but the governmental officials that agreed to the unions’ outlandish demands.

Enough. Past administrations allowed for much too generous benefits and now it not the time to undo the past with one sweeping law. Yes, public employees need to pay more of their share for health benefits and pension costs but this change must be gradual.  New hires should be started at different tiers (with contributions higher than current employees). It is obvious that big business and the governor’s Koch Industries will benefit the most from the proposed law-Democrats stay out of WI until a reasonable conclusion can be created.

Public workers sure need to pay a higher percentage of healthcare premiums and pensions than they do now. Enact a gradual increase and create new tiers for new-hires (with higher contribution percentages). The bully governor needs to back off and re-think his toxic ideas. Public servants are not villains but the GOP is certainly casting them as such.
