The Alternative to Walker's Benefits Plan

In a way, this is the "good news/good news" thing.

State union officials--the people who make money by 'representing' unionized State employees--are apoplectic over Governor Walker's proposal to make union membership an option.

All the noise over benefit costs? Just smoke.

State workers signaled Monday they could accept benefit cuts proposed by Gov. Scott Walker even as they prepared to battle with Walker over his plan to cut most of their union bargaining rights.

It's all about those union officers and their extra pay, folks.

But as Walker mentioned, if this plan doesn't go through, then there will be layoffs of State (and local) employees.

A LOT of layoffs of State and local employees.

Either way, the union boyzzzzzzzzz will have less bargaining chips.
