Wisconsin Legislature in Unions' Pocket

We mentioned that requiring a 50-field spreadsheet seemed excessive.

Now we know WHY it's excessive. It's the unions' way of making life hard for non-union contractors.

Three contractor groups are aligning themselves with the Department of Workforce Development in support of changes to the state’s prevailing wage law.

Those associations represent union shops.

The new law requires contractors file monthly reports on prevailing-wage payments for public works projects valued at $25,000 or more. Nonunion contractors must submit a 50-field spreadsheet every month. Union contractors must submit their collective-bargaining agreements and a six-field spreadsheet.

Pretty obvious.

Just another reason to despise unions. What a bunch of asshats. Sissies who can't stand competition.
