WEAC waning II

Monday WEAC Executive Director Dan Burkhalter announced that layoff notices had been issued to 40% of the organization’s staff.

According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Burkhalter blamed the layoffs and other budget cuts at WEAC on Gov. Scott Walker’s “union-busting” legislation.

It’s easy to understand why Burkhalter is so upset.  Before Governor Walker’s collective bargaining reforms, Burkhalter’s $242,000 annual compensation  package was paid from the forced union dues of Wisconsin school teachers.  Now he has to convince school teachers to voluntarily write a check to the union for their services.

Good luck with that, Mr. Burkhalter.
