"We’ve seen property taxes go down for the first time in 12 years on a median valued home."
Wisconsin state and local government workers pay "$500, $600 or in some cases, $1,000" per year in union dues.
If public employees don’t pay more for benefits starting April 1, 2011, "the equivalent" is 1,500 state employee layoffs by June 30, 2011 and 10,000 to 12,000 state and local government employee layoffs in the next two years.
