The sad thing with Mr. August's article is that it does not even contain accurate information. In the state of Wisconsin, public workers make LESS than their private counterparts, even when you factor in our (once) good benefits. You need to compare apples to apples, Mr. August. Yes, with my PhD I do make more than people with a high school diploma. Compare me to PhDs in the private sector and I come up about $30,000 short. Please be factual, Mr. August. Public workers are necessary for your health and comfort. Please do not make any more a mockery of us than the governor already has.
