WISCONSIN– Taxpayers United of America has revealed the salaries and estimated pensions for Wisconsin government teachers and employees in an effort to bring transparency to the government pension system. “In Wisconsin, transparency seems to end where government pensions begin,” according to Christina Tobin, Vice President of Taxpayers United of America (TUA).
“The government pension system is the property of the taxpayers. They need to know the truth about the million dollar pensions that they are supporting with their average annual wages of $39,000,” said Tobin. “The current system, behind its veil of secrecy, is corrupt; a system that makes government, union bosses, politicians, and administrators with whom they negotiate, extremely wealthy.” Read more →
