On Janesville School District considering incentive pay for administrators
Freedomfighter Our Ideological differences aside, I'm sorry things haven't worked out well for you. However, I still don't understand how giving fat sacks of cash (remember it's not a bonus) to administrators, while forcing cuts on workers, all the while proclaiming how broke we are, solves anything for you, me, students, or taxpayers.
Remember also that when the discussion was about teacher compensation the figures cited always included health care, retirement, and so forth in order to make the numbers look as high as possible. Now that they are talking about administrators they only talk about base salary, not the actual cost to employ them, thus making the figures (large as they are) seem smaller. Ever feel like someone is trying to pull the wool over your eyes?

freedom?fighter- I suppose if you would like to earn around 24% less you might enjoy a non union job, perhaps in a right to work for less state where wages across the board are even lower. "Although union wages have not risen as fast as nonunion wages in recent years, union workers still earn more, on average, than their nonunion counterparts. Estimates of Employer Costs for Employee Compensation (ECEC), for example, show that in March 2001, wages and salaries for private industry union workers averaged $18.36 per hour, compared with $14.81 for nonunion workers." From Bureau of Labor Statistics (http://www.bls.gov/opub/cwc/cm20030623ar... Some what dated but still holds true. Also increased prevalence of unionized employees tends to increase wages for non union employees as well.
Your union members determine how their executives, clerical workers et al, are compensated if you take issue with this get involved in your own union rather than bashing other unions.
Vnvet-Let's not trouble Mongo with petty details such as his own citizenship, I’m certain he’s already overwhelmed with the burden of hunting down Obama’s “real” birth certificate, communists in the cupboard, secret Muslims in the Pentagon, etc.
During the struggle over Act 10 did the right not argue “Everyone is hurting, public workers need to give back and feel the pain too.” In spite of the fact that public workers offered to make the financial concessions Act 10 would require, the righties felt it was necessary to crush collective bargaining rights. When public workers pushed back they were lambasted by the right as “selfish, communist, blah, blah, blah.” Now, according to Mongo, that paragon of right wing thought, anyone questioning handing out fat sacks of cash (let’s not call them bonuses) to administrators is yet again a selfish communist. All the red baiting and name calling would seem hypocritical were it not for the ideological consistency of the right that workers should make less and less and less, and bosses should make more and more and more.
The unmitigated gall, make workers pay more for health care then hand out fat sacks of cash so the six figure bosses can buy more toys! Is this still because “We’re Broke! We’re Broke!”?
On Was it good to shoot down four-hour gun training?
As a life long supporter of concealed carry I am concerned that the elimination/reduction in training requirements may negatively impact Wi permit holders ability to cc out of state. Those who rail on about 'egregious' training requirements would do well to consider that other states are under no obligation to recognize a Wi permit, and that reducing our permit to a joke will likely cause other states to treat it as such. While I also support constitutional carry, it needs to exist alongside a meaningful permitting process. Without a Wi permit other non constitutional carry states have no ability to grant recognition to WI residents right to cc in their state. Unless you think other states will just say "Oh your from Wi? no problem."
On Janesville school tax to rise 2.5%
That's right "OnePost"- Coward walker passing the buck on taxes. I wonder how Bill Sodemann is liking walker today.
On Redneck Party set to protest Gov. Walker's speech
916wi- Way to go! Stand tall with Dave (The Strangler) Prosser!!! You must be a "Values Voter"
Sigma- Quite right! The very notion that walker would or could create the 250K jobs he campaigned on is farcical, but for the fact that some folks bought that bill of goods and voted for the con man. No indeed, I'm hardly 'concerned' much less disappointed with his lack of "Job Creation." It's his incessant lying that is cause for concern. Amazingly some people still buy his hooey.
