Republican Candidate for Gov. Walker Proposes Reduced Wages and Increased Benefit Taxes During Recession. Bad for Business and Job Creation.

In the upside down world of Republican logic, County Executive Scott Walker presented his 2010 Budget to the Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors last week.

The proposed budget ... makes reductions in the cost of wages and benefits. Specifically, the budget is based on all employees taking a 3% wage reduction and contributing 5% for retirement and 15% for health care costs. It also reduces other forms of wage increases.

Republican Walker is hurting Wisconsin's economy by taking money out of the pockets of consumers, making it almost impossible to increase business expansions and employee hiring's.

Walker's picked the wrong time to reduce wages and increase taxes on employee benefits, especially during a recession.

What is he thinking?
