Apologies if I've missed a diary on the subject--DK4 apparently has much greater capabilities than the prior version, but I'll be the first to admit that I haven't read every diary posted on this or any other topic.
In reading various news articles and diaries about the anti-union budget proposal and pro-union protests in Wisconsin, I've occasionally seen mention that Walker's push to eliminate collective bargaining by public workers' unions includes a clause that those workers could no longer collectively bargain for raises greater than the rate of inflation.
That said, I have yet to see any news outlet or Kossack address what this would mean in real world terms: That teachers and most other public servants in Wisconsin (or any other state which approved similar legislation) would break even, AT BEST, from this point forward. They'd be condemned to trying to justify why their incomes should not be reduced in real terms (e.g., inflation-adjusted terms).
In a time when progressives, liberals and conservatives all decry the quality of schooling and the shortage of teachers and dedicated public servants, it seems beyond ludicrous to talk about paying them less in the short and long term, drying up the pool of qualified and motivated individuals.
Then again, that might just be my pro-union upbringing in Wisconsin, and my pro-union thoughts....
