MADISON–A report released today by Taxpayers United of America (TUA) reveals that government employees of the City of Madison, Univ. of Wisconsin, Dane County and Madison government schools are not only receiving very generous salaries, but their estimated pension benefits in many cases will be larger than salaries in the private sector.
