Channel 3000 Excerpt:
MADISON, Wis. -- Madison Mayor Paul Soglin said on Monday that local unions have agreed to $2.3 million in contract modifications that will mean no layoffs or furloughs for police officers or firefighters for next year.[...]Union leaders said they didn't have to open up the contracts, but they did because the city needed help.
For some reason, most people tend to respond favorably to changes and adjustments when they aren't softened up first with a baseball bat. Unfortunately, it's way too late for Walker and state Republicans to get a lesson in good government from Madison. Not to assume that they would care or want the lesson anyways.
