Sorry that I make a good wage and have made sound financial decisions. If that upsets you maybe you should have worked harder and smarter. You are probably over 50 so I can imagine how that makes you feel. Unsuccessful

You vote republican and reap yours.
If you are indeed working at a union job you are one of a very few. The kind of jobs you claim to have are almost extinct. You had better save your money because their isnt any such thing as job security these days. The company you work for no matter what they do or how big they are can still be taken down overnite. And that pension fund can dissappear very quickly also.

Wisconsin voters need to increase income and property taxes to pay for teacher benefits. These are the people who take care of your children for God's sake.

OK, Wisconsin needs to increase income and property taxes to pay for firemen and other public service union members. After all, who could hate firemen?

I am. Still leaves open the question why WI hates teachers and firemen. All they need to do is raise income and property taxes and the public sector unions will be happy.

Bedied that Rusty, as you are not smart enough to relize--Walker does not have to raise taxes to satisfy his big donors. He still has the school districts and the other incoming taxes WaLKER can give to his donors to feed on while he calls in his plumber to shut off the drip in the faucet you have been feeding on and his donors can have lunch down at T BONES whille you are thinking about a $$$ burger at Mc Donalds. Once that faucet is fixed the pond dries up even on the bottom feeders and they starve to death.

We can only wish! Our country has a policy of subsidizing the bottom feeders and creating even more of them. They contribute nothing, and most of them never meant to.

when talking unions , you must differentiate between manufacturing unions, where the world labor force steals jobs,and government unions,THAT COMPETE WITH NO ONE, just for the tax purse.like wise when talking taxes ,theirs federal taxes, state taxes and local taxes. and the 4th tax for 45 years has been the basic welfare means tested tax, and if fed taxes go down,it usually means the state and county TAXES,FEES,CHARGES GO UP..STEALING MONEY,TAXES,FEES, AND FINEs ,and un funded pensions ,health care costs are born by every body who flunked means testing..if every one had the pay and benefits of our postal system,THE WAR ON POVERTY would have never been an option..

$19 per hour ,average pay and benefits is over$63,000 a year, that means half are under 63k and the other half over $63,000 per year.. .but congress would rather create mahem with a minimum wage , which is a poverty wage..
