USA Today did the study.

Wisconsin is one of 41 states where public employees earn higher average pay and benefits than private workers in the same state, a USA TODAY analysis finds. Still, the compensation of Wisconsin's government workers ranks below the national average for non-federal public employees and has increased only slightly since 2000.

What the last sentence tells you is that under the Thompson/Doylet regimes, Wisconsin Government has damn near killed private-sector earnings.

More Big Gummint, anyone????

Saw this myself, Iowa public employees make twice what I do on average. Any last bits of residual sympathy I may have had is now gone.

Oh swallow your pride Al. Des Moines would suit you well.

The USA Today bs was laid bare 2-3x in last 24 months. Like clockwork this same reporter spews out identical blather that fails every fact check it's subjected to. I'm surprised Murdock hasn't bought this fair & balanced news organ.
