You're welcome to verify it. The public worker unions have repeatedly offered to give those concessions, as long as they have the right to collectively bargain in the future when the economy allows it.

There's been another argument: That the dispute over allowing public workers to collectively bargain for wages is just a cover so that people won't read the actual budget repair bill and see what it's hiding.

One of the clauses in the bill that Walker tried to rush through the legislature so quickly, grants him the power to sell off public assets (Namely, state-owned power companies) without requiring a public bidding process. IE, he can sell state owned assets at any price, to anyone he wants, without the public being able to know.

Another part of the bill attempts to tamper with how BadgerCare (what the state calls Medicaid) is run; who is eligible, etc.
