On The John Muir Show: Thanks to Act 10, School Districts Save $3.2 Billion on Benefits Alone

August 7, 2018

Wisconsin school districts have saved $3.2 billion in employee benefits costs since Act 10 was enacted in 2011, new state data shows. Gov. Scott Walker’s collective bargaining reform gave districts more flexibility to find better deals on employee health insurance, resulting in benefits costs being 60 percent lower today than if the prior trend had continued. MacIver research associate Ola Lisowski joins John Muir on WTAQ in Green Bay to discuss her latest report.
