    Wisconsin membership in the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees—the state’s second-largest public-sector union after the National Education Association, which represents teachers—fell to 28,745 in February from 62,818 in March 2011, according to a person who has viewed Afscme’s figures. A spokesman for Afscme declined to comment.

    Dues paid by American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees union member would be $14.24 in dues per paycheck.

    So in a year with 24 paychecks the union member paid $341.76 to the union.

    With 34,073 no longer having $341.76 deducted from their checks the state saw $11 million MORE available for the former union member to spend!
