    Press Releases | News from EPI: EPI study finds, Wisconsin public-sector workers under-compensated


    A new Economic Policy Institute study released this week finds that full-time state and local government employees in Wisconsin are undercompensated by 8.2%, when compared to otherwise similar private-sector workers. By using a comprehensive database that is updated monthly by the U.S. Census Bureau and Bureau of Labor Statistics, the study provides an accurate comparison of public- and private-sector compensation in Wisconsin.

    The analysis, Are Wisconsin Public Employees Over-compensated? by Labor and Employment Relations Professor Jeffrey Keefe of Rutgers University, controls for education, experience, hours of work, organizational size, gender, race, ethnicity, experience, citizenship and disability. The study uses data collected primarily from the National Compensation Survey, and in accordance with standard survey practice, focuses on year-round, full-time public and private-sector employees.

    So hes cutting the wages of people who are already behind the private sector.

    The right wants government dead folks.

    They are trying to kill it from inside.


    They want it to fail.

    Ask Grover Norquist what their real aim is.

    The leadership of the right wants to kill the governmnet of this country.

    They want to replace it with a government run by them that pushes the American income down to equal the rest of the worlds.


    Its how they get you into the new world order plan where the Corps can play American workers just like they play the ones in any thrid world country.


    You help them by supporting insane things like stripping workers of bargaining rights and screaming about unions.

    As it should be. Most (if not all) government jobs should pay below the private-sector.

    Because their benefits package is better. Oh, and, because they're generally less efficient than private sector employees.

    If that's the goal then it looks like Obama is helping.
