Rewards Himself While Whining About His Family’s “Purchasing Power”
MADISON-Wisconsin Democrats on Wednesday called on Scott Walker to return his $7,300 raise, given Walker whined on air this weekend about his family’s diminished “purchasing power,” and two weeks after he instituted a second pay freeze for other state workers.
An Open Records Request from the Democratic Party of Wisconsin to the Office of State Employment Relations office shows that, as pay remains the same for Corrections Officers, Licensed Practical Nurses, Social Workers and Facilities Maintenance Employees, Scott Walker’s salary increases by more than $7,331.
“Scott Walker talks a good game about “shared sacrifice,” but obviously thinks he is exempt from the sharing,” Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Mike Tate said Wednesday. “The only things Whining Scott Walker seems to be sharing are sob stories with “Struggling” Sean Duffy about their paltry six-figure taxpayer-funded salaries.”
“The rest of Wisconsin is being asked to accept less and suffer his unemployment economy, but apparently Scott Walker thinks he deserves a $7,300 raise,” Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Mike Tate said Wednesday. “Whining Scott Walker has lied about paying back into his pension and now sees fit to complain about his family’s purchasing power, even as he is set to make $143,000. Apparently, he wants to be recalled so that he can test what his CEO skills are worth on the open market. In the meantime, he should set an example and payback taxpayers for the little value they receive from his failed leadership.”
