From Milwaukee:

Thirteen-thousand and two-hundred dollars is a guaranteed absolute minimum of how much money my father stands to lose March 13th if Governor Walker’s bill gets through the state legislature. His contract includes $3 to every hour of sick leave and vacation he doesn’t use. There are also other ways to accrue hours and I don’t claim to know much about the finite details about that but over the many years he’s worked in the Department of Corrections, he’s banked 4400 hours x $3. That benefit is gone as of March 13th if his union contract is voided by Governor Walker’s bill.
Go read the rest.
