On Wisconsin governor supports bill to curb 'double-dipping’
Donnaw....very simple. If I retire, my position needs to be filled with someone else. That person has to be paid a salary, benefits and a pension. If I am hired back on to fill that spot on a temporary or limited basis they do not have to pay me benefits or pay into my pension. This happens often with positions that are hard to fill.
On Walker reviewing proposed concealed carry rules
The Republicans get this law passed, the Republican Attorney General sets the guidelines for the rules.....most Republicans are happy about this and then......a powerful interest group is not happy and Walker must now "review" the guidelines. I would almost bet money that those guidelines will change. Just a coincidence?
On Democrat survives recall vote
brwe, if the people had a problem with the way democrats ruled for decades they had the option of using recalls. Did they? Why not?
On WE THE PEOPLE of WI are NOT TO BE FOOLED!
For all of you complaining about bias...don't you have clue what your reading? It's a blog...not a news article. Blogs are meant for people to express their opinions. Do you whine and cry about bias when the editor of the paper writes an editorial? I'm pretty sure that somewhere around the blog there is a disclaimer from the gazette that points this out. If you don't like the blog quit reading it or at least comment with some constructive criticism. Your complaints of bias are getting old.
On Baldwin says she’s likely to run for US Senate
Freebird you really need to figure out what your talking about. The majority of the state did not vote for him....he won with around 52% or 54% of the vote. That is not a majority of people in WI it is barely a majority of those who voted.
I love the comment about "teachers who rake in the money." It shows just how ignorant people can be.
On Wis. worker groups file suit to block budget bill
Its a federal issue if the court finds the law violates the 1st and 14th amendments. Not saying they will rule that way but that would make it a federal issue.
On School worker opens checkbook for district
Cass....where are you getting your figures? I highly question your claims. At the very least you are just cherry picking the amounts that possibly the supervisors make, and I even doubt that. I highly doubt food service workers make $17 an hour. My mother has worked in school food service (not in Janesville) for 25 years and makes no where near that amount. It may not be in Janesville but I doubt there would be that much difference between the two areas.
On Union leader suggests closing Madison schools Wednesday
sannio, your right. Just because you don't have contractual protections at your job means we should strip them from everyone else. Way to try to pull people down rather than lift people up. I think most public employees understand and expected to pay more for health insurance and pensions, but to eliminate all bargaining rights is just plain vindictive of Walker. It is unecessary. Money can be saved through these other measures, but to take away rights that workers have had for the last 60 years is beyond that.
On Source says Walker would abolish union bargaining rights
The rights of unions to bargain working conditions has NOTHING to do with balancing the budget......Walker is trying to eliminate unions plain and simple
I don't care what you say...this guy is nuts! I understand the state of the economy, and I understand that as a public employee I need to pay more for my health insurance and pension, but to eliminate bargaining rights of public employees is crazy! How the @#$# can he get away with this? Wisconsin has been built upon the tradition of unions.
How can he say that my union should not be able to bargain working conditions? So if my school board decided that they wanted me to work 12 hour days or take away all of my prep time I should just shut up and take it? How is that fair? In reality, he is trying to take away all bargaining rights of teachers because he also has a plan to cap salaries.
You may think unions only protect poor workers, but they do a darn good job of protecting fair working conditions. Kiss those goodbye if Walker gets his way. People need to call their legislators and tell them to dump this poor excuse of legislation.
