Wisconsin Reopens Fight Over Collective Bargaining


Recommended Posts

Fox News:

MADISON, Wis. -- The Legislature's budget committee reopened the fight over collective bargaining rights shortly after midnight on Friday, proposing that newly hired police and firefighters be forced to pay more for their health insurance and pension benefits.

The change, approved by the Republican-controlled committee on an 11-4 party line vote, would force police and firefighters to make the same level of contributions of other public workers as required under a bill pushed by Gov. Scott Walker and passed by the Legislature in March.

Police and firefighters were exempt under that bill.snip
