Government employees in Wisconsin are double-dipping.
You see, it’s been common practice for those slurping off the public trough (not the website) to retire from their jobs, collect their pension, then within one month and a day, return to their former government employment to collect their payroll and pension simultaneously.
Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker seeks to end this practice for good, however union advocates, as part of their “Walker is destroying Wisconsin” campaign, want this practice to continue, and at all costs, including a recall election against the republican governor.
As reported in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, “The latest case, reported by the Green Bay Press-Gazette, involved Associate Provost (University of Wisconsin-Green Bay) Timothy Sewall, who retired from his job in March — when the Legislature was reducing benefits for public employees — and was hired back a month later to his $110,000 position. After his rehire, he was still collecting his $44,000 pension.”
The “latest” case? How pervasive is this practice in government?
It doesn’t take a staunch liberal activist to figure out that government entities have been blatantly taking care of themselves at the expense of over-burdened taxpayers in Wisconsin. And to no one’s surprise, these employees hate Walker for attempting to take nirvana away from them. Liberals just don’t want to admit it to anyone else but their brood.
Which “working class family” do the unions support? That’s right, the family of government officials who make this all possible for the government working class elite, funded entirely by those bad corporations and their employees . . . by law.
Crooked thinking is what’s been damaging this country, and helping to put the private middle class in jeopardy and on the brink of extinction.
Legalized thievery. Unions. Inept and self-serving politicians. A recipe for the destruction of America. And it’s baking in your oven right now America.
Let that nutty, conservative, tea party revolution begin.
