The next attack on state employees: Decent retirement benefits unacceptable!

This story came from the AP and appeared in papers all over the state (I assume.)

Although it impacts all state employees, it is clearly a big issue for faculty in the UW system. Our pay is already low in comparison with other systems and universities, and legislators are dying to cut our pay even more.

I can already see the battle lines in the next budget--"Lets cut the retirement pay of overpaid college professors--that will surely drive out the liberals!" the Republicans will cry.

God forbid that Wisconsin take care of its state workers in retirement!

State's pension among best
