The Easy Wisconsin Budget Fix

Headless assembled the numbers.

Since the solution is simple, it will never happen--but the numbers are mind-boggling.

Want a hint?

The average state government worker makes $50,350. The average private sector worker makes $43,889. That is a 14% difference.

That's the overall NATIONAL average, exclusive of benefits.

The difference in Wisconsin is much, much worse.
