    I know I am getting screwed! You know I am getting screwed! The problem is too many people in this state are blissfully unaware of what is going on around them, as we are a solid 'blue' state.

    I think, for the most part, you are absolutely right. People never gave it a thought until Wisconsin's Democrats left the state and drew a target on teachers' backs for the news media.

    The thing is though that people are siding with the unions and not with the governer, so it appears the target is on his back, not theirs.

    That remains to be seen -- at the ballot box, and in the Senate chambers whenever the Democrats find out that enough contracts are being renewed behind the scenes to subvert the whole process.

    You know why its hard to get a teachers position? Because everyone and their cousin wants to be one! So they made it more difficult in Illinois to qualify. My friend Rob is a teacher. He used to be a retail book store manager. He said that was TWICE as difficult.

    Lets not even get into how difficult it is to fire a crappy teacher! Or their INSANE pensions! Beginning teachers should make no more than $27K a year and after ten years make no more than $37K a year. Now divide that salary by NINE...... NOT 12 since they only work 9 months. Plus they need to pay 20% of their benefits.
    you obviously have no idea how much teachers do, how many hours they ACTUALLY put in related to their job, etc. We should all simply forgive and forget your ignorance of this subject.

    March 3, 2011 | Madison - Madison Mayor Dave Cieslewicz is the first to admit he wanted a quick Common Council vote on Feb. 17 to approve collective bargaining agreements with 12 unions in advance of possible legislative approval of Gov. Scott Walker's budget-repair bill.

    E-mails obtained by Citizens for Responsible Government between staff for Cieslewicz and Sen. Mark Miller (D-Monona) indicate an effort to slow the timing of the publication of the bill had it passed.

    In one e-mail from Janet Piraino, Cieslewicz's chief of staff, Piraino writes: "As you may have heard, Madison will convene a special council meeting on Thursday to extend collective bargaining agreements so that all our unions are on the same footing, with a contract through 2O12. We are racing against the clock so that our extensions will go into effect before the bill becomes law. To make matters worse, if the state law goes into effect first, the amendments to the agreements will make them null and void under the provisions of the new law. lf that happens, all our employees will be subject to the benefit cuts immediately, instead of at the end of the current contract."

    Cieslewicz said Thursday that, since the bill didn't pass, the matter is a moot point. But he said he doesn't regret making the effort to approve the contracts.

    One wonders how this move served his constituency. I'm sure it served his future campaign donations, but the taxpayers?

    Some rivers actually caught on fire. It was the robber barons and industrialists who placed profit above public safety that the govt finally went after.....lousy liberals and crappy conservatives, both sides were able to get on that band wagon.
    Did every company in the 70's operate in an unethical manner?

    If the majority of the population is for the unions than my thought is that they will be OK with this move I certainly don't have a problem with it since it is proper to do what one can when someone is attempting to remove a fundamental right.
