I'm kind of amazed at the numbers being balked at in WI. We don't get a pension, but both our companies do a company match to our 401k's- his is up to five percent, mine is two percent.
I think that is VERY fair.
When the health insurance was under me at the restaurant (when I was a manager), we were paying $220 dollars out of every paycheck... or forty percent of the health care costs. Now that we are under him, it's much less, we are paying ten percent of cost. We get a chart every year.
Am I too young? Many places don't offer pensions AT ALL anymore. What kinds of numbers would be acceptable in Wisconsin?
Why should people get raises as a group, and a higher percentage of raise than the rest of the country is getting? I just don't get what the big fight is here. Everyone else buckled down without raises for a while, I think state workers should, as well.
