Internal Walker Memo Clearly Shows Intent of New Rule is To Cut Teacher Pay by 31.1%
"Later in the memo, they clearly lay it out (see graph in link above). The "average single base wage" in Option 3 or the "status quo" will go from $56,302.57 to $38,822 in Option 1 (the one that Walker chose). That means on average, the average base wage will drop by 31.1%-- a huge hit to a teacher pay that is already below the national average.
There you have it in the Walker camp's own words: The intention of this rule was to make collective bargaining impossible by pushing the bargaining ceiling for salaries 31.1% below what teachers are being currently paid."
Walker = the 1%
