But the real money will be saved through Rules changes.
...The key part of Walker's bargaining reform isn't making workers pay a more reasonable share of their benefits cost; the key part, rather, is letting government be managed better.
The law restricts public-sector bargaining to wages. Benefits won't be bargained, and neither will work rules. The latter is important, says Vrakas, because having to bargain for any change in how the county's work is done makes it hard to do the work better.
Thus Dan Vrakas.
That, of course, is what Vrakas meant when he said "...do more with less." While I still think that Government as a whole could do a lot LESS with less, private industry has proven--beyond a doubt--that using 5S, "Lean", and other work-simplification tools gets big results.
