    …like I said, low pay, no benefits, slave wage Government subsidized crap jobs. But hey, at least each “job” is only going to cost Wisconsin taxpayers $230,000.00 each! What a great deal for taxpayers! And we’ll only be on the hook until the the mid 2040’s! “Fiscal conservatism” and “small limited government” at its very best. Thanks Walker! Thanks republicans!
